Discovery NM/CT 570c ushers in the first generation of volume SPECT/CT technology, opening the door to new procedure possibilities in non-invasive cardiac imaging beyond those offered by conventional SPECT or SPECT/CT scanners. This leap is achieved through the combination of Alcyone technology, and an innovative system design that enables the clinician, for the first time ever, to utilize volume coverage and thin slice imaging concurrently in a cardiac scan.


An Excellent Scan Experience for Patient and Technologist

It’s time to expand your capabilities. The Discovery NM/CT 570c incorporates technology that allows you to:

  • Increase sensitivity up to four-fold1
  • Complete cardiac scan in less than 5 minutes acquisition time
  • Reduce motion artifacts with fixed position detectors and collimation
  • Obtain complete cardiac workup, including SPECT, CT Attenuation correction, Calcium Scoring, and CT Angiography 
  • Improve image quality through increase in sensitivity and zero equipment motion1
  • Achieve faster workflow with fewer registration artifacts1

1. Note: as compared to conventional nuclear cardiology cameras.


The Discovery NM/CT 570c features:

  • Solid-state CZT detectors
  • Focused collimators
  • No detector motion
  • 3D reconstruction
  • 64-slice data acquisition system
  • 5-Beat Cardiac* with 40mm of high resolution coverage and 44msec temporal resolution
