Colquitt Regional 1st in Georgia to offer new heart scanner 

Moultrie, Ga.-based Colquitt Regional Medical Center recently became the first in the state to offer patients the MyoSPECT, a new single-photon emission computerized tomography device, The Moultrie Observer reported May 2.

The new device, which was installed in early April, offers a wider table and a 76 percent increase in field-of-view volume, which provides clinicians with a more complete picture of the heart's anatomy and pathology through its nine camera heads.

"We have worked strategically to stay on the cutting edge of technology and practices and have implemented four major pieces of equipment in the last year," said Jim Matney, president and CEO of Colquitt Regional. "To be the first hospital in the state of Georgia to introduce the MyoSPECT is a great accomplishment for our team and a huge win for our patients. This further displays our commitment to bringing top-of-the-line, modern healthcare machinery right to our patients' backyards."
