PET/CT (Positron Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography)

This sixteen-slice PET/CT scanner maximizes the clinical benefits of both PET and CT. Our system generates high quality PET and CT images of a patient in a single study. Two image data sets are registered and fused to form a single image that shows the anatomical location from CT along with the metabolic activity of PET. Integrating PET functional data with CT anatomical information enables oncologists to locate lesions that are less visible – or might have missed – with CT alone. Having this degree of accuracy and sensitivity allows physicians to recommend and implement alternative treatment plans which results in better patient outcomes.
