A feasibility trial to evaluate the usefulness of a high efficiency camera (D-SPECT) as an imaging modality for general nuclear medicine applications such as oncology.

Condition Intervention
Detect Pathalogical Lesions
Device: GP-D-SPECT

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Official Title: Evaluation of Multi Purpose D-spect Camera for General Nuclear Scans

Further study details as provided by Spectrum Dynamics:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • A comparison of high efficiency camera images (D-SPECT) to a conventional camera (A-SPECT) with respect to the ability to detect pathological lesions. [ Time Frame: 12 month ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • A comparison of high efficiency camera images (D-SPECT) to a conventional camera (A-SPECT) with respect to image quality/resolution [ Time Frame: 12 month ]

Estimated Enrollment: 40
Study Start Date: November 2009
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2010
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Device: GP-D-SPECT
    The D-SPECT system uses a solid-state detector, made of an alloy of Cadmium, Zinc, and Telluride, eliminating the need for thick crystals and large PMTs. As a result, the system is significantly miniaturized, and ergonomically optimized to both user and patient.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 80 Years   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Patient is referred to nuclear medicine department for a SPECT scan.
  2. Written informed consent is obtained by a study investigator.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Patient pregnancy (known or suspected).
  2. Lack of written informed consent
  3. Prisoner status
  4. Patient under age 18 or over 80 years old.
