Siemens Imaging Provides Clarity, Flexibility

Siemens’ Biograph TruePoint PET/CT with HD/PET allows clinicians to precisely visualize lesions as small as 2 millimeters with ultra-sharp clarity and contrast.

Integrating SPECT with diagnostic multislice CT, Symbia TruePoint SPECT/CT combines superb image clarity with unprecedented flexibility. It offers diagnostic capabilities for a range of indications at a single point of care, all in a compact, patient-friendly unit that fits any setting.

The Symbia E is the newest addition to the Symbia family of SPECT and SPECT/CT imaging systems. The system can be upgraded as a facility’s workload grows. The Symbia E offers syngo workflow solutions such as an integrated physician worklist and it provides imaging in half the time for cardiology and oncology patients, when using cardio•Flash and onco•Flash reconstruction software packages, according to the company. With the Symbia E, facilities will be able to see a wide range of patients from pediatrics to bariatrics and can also be equipped with special positioning pallets for mammography. It also sports a tilting detector for optimized planar imaging.

Also featured at RSNA, Inveon is a preclinical imaging platform, providing integrated PET, SPECT and CT imaging and analysis. The system reportedly delivers the industry's highest PET resolution and sensitivity and includes a suite of research tools that improve the workflow of basic research.
