Healthcare arm of DIMO and the exclusive partner for Siemens Healthineers in Sri Lanka, DIMO Healthcare has further elevated the technological prowess of Lanka Hospitals, a premier private hospital in the country through installing state-of-the-art ‘Siemens Healthineers Symbia Evo Excel Gamma’ camera taking early diagnosis to new heights. 

The Siemens Healthineers Symbia Evo Excel Gamma camera installed at Lanka Hospitals is an advanced system that plays a crucial role in nuclear medicine with staging tumour localisation, therapy follow-up and treatment of various tumours. The comprehensive new Siemens Healthineers Symbia Evo Excel Gamma camera assists medical practitioners diagnosing tumours like thyroid carcinoma, metastatic bone carcinoma, breast carcinoma, lymphoma (lymphoscintigraphy), melanoma, brain tumour and more, transforming the oncology field. The Gamma camera also plays a very important role in diagnosing various non-oncology indications like renal, pulmonary, endocrine and CNS.

Equipped with advanced Symbia Evo Excel technology, the Gamma camera enables faster and superior image quality. This significantly aids clinicians in early disease detection and informed treatment decisions even with facilitating the identification of small lesions. Faster scanning times and best-in-class image quality, facilitate initial staging and timely treatment planning for patients. Additionally, the Gamma camera features a wider bore to minimise claustrophobia during scans and allows for easy positioning of obese or bedridden patients. An exclusive 76-degree cardiac angle is also available for cardiac studies.
