The Inveon is a modular system that allows users to combine positron emission tomography (PET), single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and computed tomography (CT) acquisition systems in one unit. The system also delivers the industry's highest PET resolution and sensitivity and it boasts a suite of research tools that improve the workflow of basic research. These tools can help speed the drug development process as they enable researchers to identify specific biological processes, monitor the efficacy of compounds, and measure the effects of disease progression over time.

Thirty Installed Systems

Siemens will install the 30th Inveon preclinical imaging system at The Methodist Hospital in Houston.
