CrystalCam Hand Held Gamma Camera

Price: Call JRT for Pricing

CrystalCam is a portable gamma camera for accurate real-time visualization and localization of radioactive markers. Small and lightweight, it fits in the palm of your hand and is directly applicable on the patient before, during, and after surgery. Designed to satisfy the most challenging demands of nuclear medical imaging, the new CrystalCam Handheld Gamma Camera allows for fast pre- and intra-operative imaging of sentinel lymph nodes (SLN) and the thyroid.

The CrystalCam includes an image sensor based on innovative cadmium zinc telluride (CdZnTe) semiconductor technology with a field of view of 40 x 40 mm². This allows high sensitivity and excellent energy resolution while still achieving a low weight of only 1.8 lb (including the collimator and side shielding.)
  • Real time imaging with free choice of acquisition time and integrated homogeneity correction
  • Faster acquisition due to closest proximity to the patient compared to conventional gamma cameras
  • 2.5 times better energy resolution compared to conventional gamma cameras resulting in precise distinction between 99mTc, 57Co and other nuclides
  • Pixel matched collimators provide high sensitivities and high resolution for fast and precise imaging
  • Instant snapshot by pushing camera button and integrated last snapshot view
  • Semi-automatic pixel individual calibration and homogenization
  • Dual nuclides with CrystalClearView
  • Easy quality control for sensitivity, homogeneity, peaking and null-elect
  • Touch screen compatible during operation
CrystalCam provides unparalleled levels of precision, usability and comfort. Advanced technology meets comfort for easiest operation and maximum protection  of the patient.  It is designed to satisfy the most challenging demands of nuclear medical imaging.
  • Pre- and intraoperative imaging of sentinel lymph nodes (SLN)
    • Preoperative localization and marking of the SLN on the patient’s body
    • Intraoperative localization of the SLN and monitoring of the operative findings
  • Pre- and intraoperative imaging of thyroids
    • Preoperative imaging as a preparation for the surgical removal of the thyroid
    • Intraoperative imaging as incision monitoring
  • Intraoperative imaging for neuroendocrine tumors (NET) with 68Ga-DOTATOC/DOTATATE
  • Radio-guided occult lesion localization (ROLL)
  • Sentinel node and occult lesion localization (SNOLL)
  • Thyroid Imaging
The powerful, intuitive and reliable software Crystal Imager completes the sophisticated hardware composition of the handheld gamma camera CrystalCam. With its innovative design the Crystal Imager sets standards in handling image acquisition, quality control or calibration procedures.
