Molecular CT Makes Sense

Already installed at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, Biograph mCT will begin commercial installations second quarter of 2009. Several facilities from the United States, Europe, Asia and Australia have already placed orders and will become the first adopters of molecular CT. Memorial Medical Center in Springfield, Ill., is one of them. The facility will install a 128-slice Biograph mCT in its new outpatient imaging center, where it will be utilized as a dedicated CT and in parallel, as a PET-CT.

"We are extremely proud to be a national leader in the introduction of the Biograph mCT integrated imaging technology," said Marjorie Calvetti, director of Radiology at Memorial Medical Center. "This is consistent with our philosophy of making leading-edge technology available as a means of fulfilling our mission of improving the health of the people and communities we serve," Calvetti added. "It is also directly aligned with our vision to be a national leader for excellence in patient care."

"Memorial Medical Center was also first to install Siemens Symbia T16 system, and a Biograph mCT will represent their continued commitment to being a leader in patient care," adds Reitermann.

The Power of Advanced CT and PET Working Together

Tremendous advances in CT have enabled clinicians to prove the value of multislice capabilities, speed and resolution. Functional as well as anatomical imaging is achieved with today's cutting-edge CT technology, but by adding "living color" to CT using molecular imaging biomarkers, such as FDG, the clinician is now able to visualize cell metabolism within tumors, offering personalized and very specific information about patients' disease. Biograph mCT, with ultra HD·PET technology, that combines time-of-flight (TOF) and point-spread-function (PSF) reconstru
