June 20, 2011
The Biograph mCT 20 Excel addition to the Biograph family of PET/CT imagers offers good hybrid imaging performance at a lower cost.

Designed to ensure that PET/CT imaging is available to medical institutions worldwide – including community hospitals, smaller imaging centers and emerging markets exploring hybrid imaging for the first time – Biograph mCT 20 Excel offers unique imaging technologies, such as 20-slice adaptive CT; standard PET time-of-flight; HD/PET for uniform resolution across the entire field of view; and HD/Chest, a technology that reduces blur created by respiration during PET/CT studies. Biograph mCT 20 Excel boasts a large 78 cm bore and 227 kg (500-pound) capacity table optimized for large patients. The large bore also easily accommodates radiotherapy positioning devices for more accurate treatment planning.

Biograph mCT 20 Excel matches the Biograph reputation for high uptime and is recognized by industry reporting organizations such as MDBuyline for system performance and reliability. As with all Biograph systems, Biograph mCT 20 Excel has a full upgrade path on both CT and PET to ensure that the system can grow to meet the needs of expanding healthcare facilities.

The system was introduced in June 2011.
