Manila Doctors launched and introduced the new Siemens Symbia Intevo xSPECT during the press conference held last September 23, 2014.
Manila Doctors Hospital partners with Siemens in bringing the world’s best xSPECT system to the Philippines and in Southeast Asia - the new Symbia Intevo which provides physicians with the ability to not only image disease, but also to leverage the high resolution to see the unseen for more confident interpretations. Its unique quantitative capabilities provide the ability to monitor and adjust treatments earlier by accurately measuring even small differences.
To support patient safety and increased efficiency, Symbia Intevo was designed to administer the lowest dose while imaging patients faster than ever.
Symbia Intevo is the world’s best Gamma Camera with CT Scan and the first system of its kind in the Philippines and in Southeast Asia to allow easy, accurate and reproducible quantification, making treatment follow-up possible.

Faster and more accurate cardiac imaging
The increase in demand for faster myocardial perfusion imaging has been one of the key trends in nuclear medicine. With Symbia Intevo, cardiac imaging becomes 75% faster and more comfortable and accurate than ever before. The innovative IQ.SPECT makes cardiac imaging 4 times faster for patient comfort and improved image quality.
Molecular Imaging is now Quantitative
Accurate and reproducible quantification supports physicians’ ability to more confidently interpret clinical images, enabling early modification of treatment and potentially reducing the cost for skeletal such as assessment of bone graft function and retention, hip joint replacement follow-up, assessment of meniscal pathology and grading and follow up of renal osteodystrophy. The scanner may also be used for other applications such as infection, inflammation, lung perfusion, renal cortical mass, liver and autoimmune disease.
Through this latest acquisition, Manila Doctors Hospital in its thrust to provide world-class quality and affordable healthcare to its stakeholders aims improve patient well-being, reduce costs and increase productivity. Symbia Intevo may give physicians the ability to make progress in diagnosing and treating the most challenging diseases, and to make more accurate treatment decisions.
