Much to the excitement of the Medical Imaging Department, a unique tool for diagnosing and treating patients has now been installed in Nuclear Medicine at VJH. A new gamma camera, a GE NM 830 system, has replaced their 20-year old camera and the department is now boasting the most up-to-date and newest technology.
Dr. Curtis Mohamed, Medical Director of Nuclear Medicine explains: “The new camera comes with more sophisticated and updated technology for more accurate and comprehensive diagnosis and patient management. And because disease begins with microscopic cell changes, our team has the potential to identify disease in an earlier, more treatable stage.”
The gamma camera was installed in early March and has been operational since March 17.
