The Naviscan PEM scanner is an optimized PET scanner designed to provide unprecedented metabolic visualization of small body parts. Through a unique combination of gentle immobilization, advanced photonics and image processing, the scanner provides 3-D tomographic images with resolution down to 2 mm.
While the PEM scanner can image virtually any body part that can fit into the gantry, it is most often utilized by physicians who stage and mange breast cancer to optimize surgical planning, monitor response to therapy, and evaluate suspected recurrence.
The Naviscan PEM scanner is also the first and only commercially available PET scanner with the ability to guide breast biopsies. Its guidance system now enables physicians to guide compatible interventional devices toward abnormalities visible on the Naviscan PEM scanner.
