Delivering Molecular Imaging Solutions Across Clinical Specialties: Siemens Showcases New Technologies at RSNA 2007
Date:11/20/2007

PET imaging, intrinsic image quality has been known to degrade with increasing distance from the center of the detector. HD*PET eliminates this effect, thus providing increased diagnostic confidence to more accurately resolve peripheral lesions. This, in turn, could potentially improve diagnosis and staging of disease and hence clinical outcomes. The improved 2-mm resolution enables physicians to clearly visualize the smallest of lesions from the center to the edges of the field of view.

Siemens has also newly redesigned the mobile Biograph(TM) 6 TruePoint(TM) PET*CT system. The redesigned system incorporates hardware improvements such as a shorter gantry to reclaim critical space in the scan room, a special cantilevered patient handling system with automatic lock-down and a completely integrated closed-loop cooling system with no external chilling requirement. The new mobile systems also boast significant workflow improvements to facilitate remote operation and support for multiple site connectivity.

With the introduction of another hybrid imaging technology, the TruePoint SPECT*CT, clinicians can perform three different studies - single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), diagnostic multislice-CT, and SPECT*CT - on one compact, integrated system. Siemens has recently introduced the Symbia(R) T16 TruePoint SPECT*CT configuration, which combines the power of SPECT imaging with the precision of a 16-slice CT. Siemens Medical Solutions Molecular Imaging has seen worldwide demand for these solutions growing and these systems have a range of applications in oncology and cardiology. With the 16-slice configuration, users benefit from better temporal resolution in cardiology studies as well as improved image resolution to boost diagnostic confidence.

Symbia E

The Symbia E is the newest addition to the Symbia family of SPECT and SPECT*CT imaging systems. It provides users with a high-quality SPECT ima
