Philips Ingenuity TF PET/CT Offers 30 Percent Improved Contrast, Improved Lesion Detection

At RSNA 2012, Philips Nuclear Medicine is introducing new clinical innovations for its positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) systems. 

The all-new Ingenuity TF PET/CT with Astonish TF time-of-flight (TOF) performance has up to 30 percent improved contrast. Astonish TF offers a significant improvement in lesion detection compared to non-TOF scanners. With Philips proprietary Point Spread Function (PSF) technology, Ingenuity TF can improve spatial resolution to measure lesions at less than 2 mm. With iDose4, customers have the ability to improve computed tomography image quality at low dose for truly exceptional PET/CT performance.

The Ingenuity TF PET/CT builds confidence and consistency by putting users in control of:

  • Personalized patient-centric workflows that are built for high image quality at appropriate dose levels.
  • Complex and advanced procedures through a new way to work smarter by allowing users to plan the results they seek to achieve, not just the acquisitions.
  • Future innovations with a platform that will deliver CT and PET discoveries with workflow already inherent.


Ingenuity TF PET/CT is now shipping with both 64- and 128-slice configurations for greater flexibility.
