Philips Medical Systems will begin routine deliveries of the latest version of its gantryless gamma camera, called Skylight 2.0, in August. The system, which was showcased in the Philips booth at the Society of Nuclear Medicine meeting, is equipped with version 2.0 software and two detectors that can be mounted on the ceiling or other room structure. Skylight 2.0 features concurrent imaging and the capture of multiple images and data sets simultaneously. Concurrent imaging uses a single acquisition data stream to generate up to 15 image sets simultaneously. Each can address different parameters, substantially reducing scan time while improving image quality, according to the company.
