Date:6/10/2008

NEW YORK, June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Ask any entertainment or electronics junkie and they will tell you, HD is where it's at. And, while watching your favorite TV show in HD won't save your life, new advancements in HD medical technology just might.

The Biograph HD PET-CT system from Siemens is the world's first to utilize high-definition technology. Makers say the system will enable doctors to view high-resolution, distortion-free images, allowing them to visualize small lesions and reduce false positives.

In medical terms, PET-CT integrates the functional sensitivity of PET, with the rich anatomical detail of diagnostic CT, allowing physicians to detect changes in molecular activity before anatomical changes become visible. Simply put, this helps doctors detect diseases like Alzheimer's or heart disease, before they become apparent using traditional imaging methods. The system was first unveiled last year and is now being installed at hospitals worldwide.
