PET/CT Gets New View With GE HD Solution

June 5, 2007 - GE Healthcare introduced at SNM a new application for performing PET image generation, called VUE Point, designed to improve small lesion detectability and exam productivity.
VUE Point incorporates advanced proprietary image reconstruction algorithms, including volume scatter correction and a patented image projection technique, and is enabled by the Volume CT reconstruction technology development. VUE Point is applicable to both 2-D and 3-D PET acquisition modes, static, dynamic and motion imaging.
When combined with Discovery Dimension's workflow, VUE Point allows high-definition PET image generation on reportedly every patient exam and encompasses the full range of clinical care applications and patient sizes, enabling clinicians to perform advanced image generation in a routine clinical setting.
“It will become increasingly important to improve the quantitative performance of PET/CT for the measurement of response to therapy,” said Hadi Moufarrej, General Manager of GE Healthcare’s Global Molecular Imaging Business.
Point is available on the Discovery Dimension with new installations or by Continuum field upgrades for installed base Discovery ST systems.
