According to Philips, the GEMINI TF is the first PET system to use atomic particle time-measurements to deliver increased image quality and consistency, helping earlier disease detection in patients. These advantages have been demonstrated in a research setting, but Philips is the first to apply them to a clinical environment.
The system’s gamma rays are accurately tracked by using minute time measurements. This raises effective image sensitivity by more than two times over conventional PET. Whole-body PET scans are reduced to less than 10 minutes, even for large patients who traditionally take longer. Consistent with all GEMINI PET/CT systems, GEMINI TF also features Philips’ patented OpenView gantry design, allowing for increased patient comfort.
