Thyroid Uptake System
- Thyrowiz™ The next generation thyroid uptake system
With a novel arm design and a patent pending AF technology, the ThyroWiz™ thyroid uptake system is a high quality value leader device that offers total customer satisfaction.
The perfect balance of its spring-loaded scissor arm and novel joint design permits smooth operation and maneuverability while securing trustworthy placement of the detector head at any position. The ThyroWiz™ consists of low noise preamplifier with built in self gain stabilization function, low ripple high voltage supplier and a true digital MCA. The MCA (multi-channel analyzer), the heart of the ThyroWiz™, is equipped with a 32 bit RISC micro-processer that enables fast AD conversion and network connection via USB-II. The system-integrated digital MCA unit provides features not found on any other thyroid uptake system.
Equipped with a lap-top computer and a small footprint design, the ThyroWiz™ is a perfect fit for small departments and clinics. The ThyroWiz™-Wall model is especially suitable for extremely limited spaces. User friendly application software provides advanced GUI (graphic user interface) that guides an operator with step-by-step instruction throughout all procedures, calibration, quality control and more.

- EASY OPERATION AND MANEUVERABILITY
The perfect balanced spring-loaded scissor arm enables the movement of the detector head to be smooth and effortless. Additionally, the combination of 4 hinges and 3 rotational joints provide trustworthy placement of maneuverability.
- MEASUREMENT OF HIGH RADIATION FLUX
The patent pending AF (attenuation filter) technology enables the system to measure virtually any amount of incoming radiation without signal pile-up and saturation. For example, being equipped with the appropriately designed AF, the ThyroWiz™ device can measure administered activity of 5-10 mCi of 99mTcO4 which corresponds with a thyroid scan dose.
- ERGONOMIC DESIGN & SMALL FOOTPRINT
The system integrated digital MCA and DAQ eliminates the need of desk-top based PCI cards for data acquisition. Ergonomic and small footprint design becomes easier with a lap-top computer. By option, customer can choose the ThyroWiz™-Wall model for extremely limited spaces.
- USER FRIENDLY APPLICATION SW & GUI
Specifically designed application software and graphic user interface for the way a user takes thyroid uptake, calibration, quality control and imaging protocol, has all been designed to maximize operational efficiency and convenient.
