- Half the Dose – Patients will receive a significantly lower dose of radiopharmaceuticals in comparison to conventional PET/CT Scanners.
- Half the Scan Time - With patient comfort becoming more and more the focus of healthcare offering half the scan time goes a long way to reducing anxiety.
- Twice the Image Resolution – The benefits of this new scanner go beyond patient comfort, doctors will see 2x the resolution giving considerably better image quality for diagnoses and treatment planning.
Other patient-centric design aspects include a more comfortable patient bed that adjusts making it easier to enter and exit the machine as well as making it more comfortable during the study.
