Thyroid Uptake System
An advanced multi-purpose spectrum analysis instrument designed for diverse nuclear medicine applications. Unique positioning LED for accurate thyroid entering.
The Atomlab 960 Thyroid Uptake System is a complete, mobile, self-contained Medical Spectrometer System. Uptake studies, wipe tests, and other user-defined tasks are accomplished with speed and precision using this fully integrated computer-controlled instrument and its comprehensive selection of application software.
The system’s multichannel 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 Atomlab 960 system is configured on a compact mobile platform with locking casters and a base that measures only 66 x 86.4 cm (w x l). 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 62.2 cm of vertical travel allows the probe to be positioned from 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 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.
