BrightView 1.2.1 (service update #2): BrightView Auto Body Contouring

White Paper
Philips NM Marketing Philips Healthcare

The family of BrightView cameras employs the use of BodyGuard1 technology. The two features enabled with this technology are:

Auto Body Contouring (ABC)
An automatic body contouring feature, which is a fully automatic collision avoidance system that prevents collision of the collimator face or long edge with people or any conductive object.

System protection (TelePath)
A combined collision avoidance and detection system that monitors the positions of the following system components to avoid collisions between them.
  • Detectors and collimators
  • The portion of the gantry that supports the detectors
  • Pallet catcher
  • Table (when docked) and pallet
  • Floor
ABC is a standard feature on all BrightView family products. In ABC mode the system automatically contours the patient's body at a distance selected by the user. This feature is an electronic field-based proximity detection system which guides detectors to be a specified distance from a patient during imaging, and can be used in both SPECT and total body acquisitions.

To improve the functionality of ABC for our existing customer base, Philips Healthcare is releasing the latest software update to our BrightView SPECT gamma camera - BrightView 1.2.1 (Service Update #2). This software update is free of charge for all BrightView customers.

BrightView 1.2.1 (Service Update #2) includes ABC control software enhancements that will help reduce the total study time by accounting for dead space in Relative 90 SPECT studies and, by using the ABC feature, provide a more efficient method for positioning the detectors in Cardiac 90 studies.

For further information on the BrightView family of products, ABC, or BrightView 1.2.1, please contact your Philips Healthcare SPECT Sales Specialist or your local Field Service Engineer.
