PET/CT Systems

The past year saw the release of several new, innovative technologies to improve nuclear imaging in both positron emission tomography (PET) and single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT). 

GE Healthcare received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance of its Q.Clear technology, which is designed to provide up to two times improvement in both quantitative accuracy and image quality in PET/CT imaging. 

PET vs. SPECT, nuclear imaging advances

Just when positron emission tomography (PET) appears to be eclipsing single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) for cardiac imaging, new advances make SPECT more attractive. Both modalities also have suffered setbacks with radiopharmaceuti...
