Siemens Medical Solutions has added TruePoint technology to its family of Biograph hybrid PET/CT systems. This addition was announced at the 2006 Society of Nuclear Medicine (SNM) Annual Meeting in June.
TruePoint brings many benefits along with it, including increased axial coverage per bed position to provide whole-body PET/CT protocols and a new level of system integration for PET/CT technology and software applications.
According to Siemens, the technology provides robust data, both metabolically and anatomically, for an accurate diagnosis. It also can detect 78 percent more photons. These abilities reportedly allow physicians to find tiny lesions and arteries in detail.
