The system’s multi-channel analyzer has 1024 channels, with individual MCAs for the probe and optional well counter. Engineered for mobility, durability and operational efficiency, the Atomlab 960 handles clinical tests, safety compliance tasks, and system administration procedures quickly and accurately. Intuitive menus follow conventionally established nuclear medicine procedures, providing step-by-step guidance throughout all defined procedures. The system automatically performs calculations, stores patient information and test results, and outputs clear, concise reports. User-defined uptake protocols can be initiated.
The self-contained Atomlab 960 system is configured on a compact mobile platform with locking casters and a base that measures only 26″ w by 34″ l (66 x 86.4 cm). An upper shelf supports the flat panel PC with touch-screen display and keyboard. The stand provides convenient storage positions for Neck Phantom, Calibration/Constancy Fixture, and optional well counter. A 2″ x 2″ NaI(Tl) detector with collimator shield articulates on a multi-axis and height adjustable counterbalanced arm. The 24.5″ (62.2 cm) of vertical travel allows the probe to be positioned from 30.5 to 55″ (77.5 to 139.7 cm) in the horizontal position from the floor to accommodate seated or supine patients. The probe swings more than 180° on the horizontal plane, and extends outward up to approximately 31″ (78.7cm) horizontally from the support column. This design makes positioning for uptake studies simple and comfortable for both patient and technologist. The combination of positioning LED and distance measurement rod assures accurate, repeatable patient positioning and uptake measurements.
