Version 2017 of the Cardiac Suite brings a host of new features and improvements. Here are some that you might be interested in.

Calcium Scoring Tools

A new Calcium page is now available in QGS+QPS. You can score calcium plaque in coronary arteries, annotate images, and obtain risk information based on patient gender, age, and race.

SPECT Coronary Flow Reserve

Dynamic SPECT studies can now be used to perform myocardial blood flow calculations.

Motion Correction for Dynamic Images

A new tool in the Kinetic page allows you to correct for patient motion during dynamic acquisitions, be they SPECT or PET.

Planar MUGA Processing

QBS now allows the processing of planar studies in addition to SPECT blood pool datasets.

New Reporting

Our completely updated reporting is simplified, has a modern user interface, and works without needing dedicated databases.


Automatically generate rotating MIP images from PET and CT images. Configurable, and on-demand.


Add measurements, callout text and arrows, and more to any page in QGS+QPS.
