Siemens Powerful Biograph mCT PET/CT System Offers Advanced Tumor Detection and Workflow Solutions

Barcelona, Spain - Siemens Healthcare reported today at the annual meeting of the European Association of Nuclear medicine (EANM) in Barcelona, Spain, that leading hospitals in England, France, Germany and Monaco have shown strong interest and adoption of the Biograph mCT, the worlds first molecular CT, to fuel advanced diagnostic capabilities and to drive greater workflow efficiencies.

The Biograph mCT combines the abilities of a high-resolution Positron Emission Tomography (PET) system with those of a premium diagnostic Computed Tomography (CT) system. This unique combination of technologies results in improved image quality reduced scan times and increased patient comfort.

First introduced at EANM in 2008, the Biograph mCT has achieved widespread global adoption due to its game-changing features and benefits. A uniform 2mm image resolution throughout the entire field of view can significantly improve image quality and offer clinicians increased confidence in diagnosis. The ability for five-minute, whole-body PET scanning, combined with a large bore and short tunnel, offers a more flexible solution for demanding workflows, as well as a more comfortable environment for the patient.

The Biograph mCT is unique in that it can serve as a PET/CT system for molecular imaging, and at the same time, it is powerful enough to serve as a dedicated CT. Among the first to work with the new system is Dr. Andreas Bockisch, director of the Clinic for Nuclear Medicine, University Clinic in Essen, Germany, and president of the German Society for Nuclear Medicine.

"Technology and the work environment are important factors in medical imaging diagnostics," said Bockisch. "Improvements in image quality immediately increase diagnostic certainty."

With the Biograph mCT, one examination room serves two modalities. PET and CT scans alike can be performed by one team of operators using only one schedule and. The system provides functional, anatomical, and molecular information from non-invasive examinations, plus a high level of efficiency. The High Definition PET (HD/PET) technology of the new system enables faster scan times, as well as sharper and more precise images. As compared to previous solutions, Biograph mCT is currently the only system that performs routine PET/CT scanning in only five minutes, and coupled with a homogeneous two millimeter resolution across the entire field of view, it produces high quality diagnostic images that surpasses standard PET images.
