The five most important questions to ask about SPECT service

By Craig Snodgrass

Nuclear Medicine provides a key clinical tool in the diagnosis and treatment of cancers and heart disease. To battle these diseases effectively, imaging professionals must maintain their equipment at top performance and readiness levels.

SPECT cameras have many mechanical, hardware and software components that work together to deliver consistently high performance in producing high value clinical images. This can only be ensured by implementing a well-planned and implemented maintenance program that meets or exceeds the manufacturers’ requirements.

When it comes to selecting a professional service organization to maintain your SPECT camera, pick a team that can expertly deliver the optimal combination of service quality, broad experience, responsive partnering, and cost effectiveness. In the world of SPECT imaging maintenance, high-priced service does not necessarily equate to high quality results. Get to know the company you select and make certain the staff has the expertise to do the job right the first time. Independent Service Organizations (ISO) are frequently the best service options.

Understanding the facets of SPECT system service and maintenance
Operators of SPECT cameras are experts at providing physicians with the high-quality scans that are instrumental to accurate diagnosis and treatment planning decisions. Like operators of any complex device, technologists generally understand the systems and mechanisms that make the camera function—but not to the point of breaking out the toolbox to execute a repair. With patient safety and quality-of-care on the line, maintaining a SPECT camera calls for extensive expertise and specific skills in several areas. Anything less puts in doubt the ability of the device to operate to its full potential.

Mechanical/Environmental
A mechanical review includes checking the camera’s motions, parts lubrication, limit switches, motion sensors, and gears. It bears mentioning that issues as basic as a loose bolt (or two) can cause the camera to fail or, worse, compromise patient safety.

Heat is the single most damaging factor to SPECT system performance over time. To handle heat dissipation, fans must be functioning properly and filters cleaned. Additional environmental checks to consider include input A/C wall line voltage and room HVAC settings, verifying they are within the expected range. Correct operation of a SPECT camera depends on making certain that all monitoring instruments are working properly.
