Biograph mCT 20 Excel Offers Affordable, High-Quality PET/CT

MRI

June 7, 2011 – This year at the Society of Nuclear Medicine's (SNM) 2011 meeting, Siemens introduced Biograph mCT 20 Excel, on display for the first time in a nuclear medicine-focused meeting. It is the latest addition to the Biograph family of positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) imagers. This hybrid system offers good imaging performance at a lower cost with a 20-slice molecular CT scanner.

Designed to ensure that PET/CT imaging is available to medical institutions worldwide – including community hospitals, smaller imaging centers and emerging markets exploring hybrid imaging for the first time – Biograph mCT 20 Excel offers imaging technologies such as 20-slice adaptive CT, standard PET time-of-flight, HD/PET for uniform resolution across the entire field of view and HD/Chest, a technology that reduces blur created by respiration during PET/CT studies. Biograph mCT 20 Excel features a 78 cm bore and 227 kg (500-pound) capacity table optimized for large patients. The large bore accommodates radiotherapy positioning devices for more accurate treatment planning.

As with all Biograph systems, Biograph mCT 20 Excel has a full upgrade path on both CT and PET to ensure that the system can grow to meet the needs of expanding healthcare facilities.
