Overview

Your patients come in all shapes and sizes. Large or small, tall or short. With Ventri, you’ll now be able to image virtually all of your patients and be confident that you’re providing them great care.  

Originally designed for dedicated cardiology work, Ventri now offers expanded capability for neurology studies.  Available in two configurations:

  • Ventri with Premium Table: helps facilitate both easy patient access and operator convenience for cardiac-only scanning
  • Ventri with the Advanced Table: brings additional capabilities to Ventri, including both cardiac and neuro scanning, while still maintaining patient comfort and operator convenience

Ventri’s innovative, open architecture has been designed from the ground up to grow with your business and our future technology enhancements. GE Healthcare provides a practical upgrade pathway from Ventri to the Discovery* NM 530c and Discovery NM/CT570c, our CZT based nuclear cardiology platform – so you can expand your capabilities to meet your changing needs.

Ventri Technologist.

Designed with your technologist in mind

Ventri offers a wide range of user-friendly features that may add up to a fast, efficient and comfortable workflow. No stepping on wires, no bending to see in the gantry, no straining to see the screen.

  • Standard Ignite workflow automation helps improve productivity with streamlined workflow from patient selection through automatic launching of image processing
  • VentriCam wall-mounted patient positioning camera (Premium table) monitors patient’s position relative to the detectors; no straining, bending or kneeling to confirm position
  • Acquisition station on mobile cart or mounted to wall for convenient placement
  • ECG Trigger attaches conveniently to the table; no stretching to attach leads or tripping on wires

  • Small 14.3 x 7.3 inch (37 x 19 cm) field-of-view detectors
  • Innovative all-digital Elite detector design with 5D Real Time Corrections; every event corrected real-time for Energy, Linearity, Uniformity, Center of Rotation and Isotope Decay
  • High precision center-of-rotation ring gantry, for outstanding quality studies
  • Thin, carbon-fiber tabletop for minimal attenuation
  • Access to a robust Xeleris* clinical library with sophisticated processing capabilities
  • Myovation, and other third party quantitative analysis packages available as option

Designed with easy installation in mind

Whether in a hospital or a one-physician practice, space and time are at a premium. With its small footprint and straightforward installation, Ventri can be up and running with a reasonable investment.

  • Small 8 x 10 foot (2.4 x 3.1 m) system footprint to fit within compact spaces1
  • A quick, two-day installation (on average)
  • It easily fits on elevators, down halls and through doorways as narrow as 32 inches (81 cm) – and weighs less than 2,500 pounds (1133 kg)

1. The minimum room dimension in order to meet minimum clearance under U.S. Federal Regulations and National Standards: 29 CFR 1910 (OSHA), NFPA 70E(Standard for Electrical Safety In The Workplace), and NFPA 101 (Life Safety Code) is 8’9” x 11’9” (2.67 m x 3.58 m).

Table Options


Although we developed Ventri primarily for nuclear cardiology, we realize flexibility and efficiency are key to your success. To that end, we’ve designed Ventri around the same premise.

As your facility evolves, have the freedom to choose a table that will best suit your needs. Just interested in dedicated cardiac imaging? Or would you like the flexibility to do neuro imaging as well? You pick.

Designed for cardiac-only imaging

The Premium Table helps facilitate both easy patient access and operator convenience for cardiac-only scanning.

  • Automated positioning for efficient patient movement and scan setup
  • Memorized Previous Scan Parameters provide easy, quick and consistent patient positioning for the second scan
  • To grow with your changing needs, a practical upgrade pathway from Ventri with the Premium Table to the latest CZT-based Alcyone technology is available
  • A 440-pound patient weight limit to accommodate your large patients

Designed for cardiac and neuro imaging

The Advanced Table brings additional capabilities to Ventri, including both cardiac and neuro scanning, while still maintaining patient comfort and operator convenience.

  • Neuro imaging enabled by the optional Brain Imaging Package allowing for 360 degree orbit acquisitions, supporting static, dynamic and SPECT modes
  • Feet-first positioning for cardiac scans and head-first positioning for neuro scans adds patient comfort and may reduce claustrophobia
  • A compartment built into the stretcher for ECG leads and patient belongings
  • When the need presents itself, a 500-pound patient weight capacity
