New PET/CT Targets Radiology, Oncology Needs

March 11, 2010 - A new PET/CT (postitron emission tomography/computed tomography) system provides imaging for both the clinical areas of both radiology and oncology.

Launched at the European Congress of Radiology (ECR 2010), the GEMINI LXL is designed to help optimize workflow and streamline operations. Featured in the GEMINI LXL are workflow improvements and the availability of a couch motion enabler. Streamlined workflow is also included for cardiac scanning, from easier cardiac gating setup and data storage to a cardiac alignment application which simplifies the process of cardiac re-alignment.

The GEMINI LXL features new crystal and detector technology and is designed with enhanced sensitivity and higher image quality through reconstruction and image processing. It also enables improved accuracy with patient motion management due to its 4D PET/CT imaging capabilities.

Modern crystals and detector technology used for the GEMINI LXL are engineered to improve image quality and lead to a faster output of scans. Not only can it be used for imaging in the oncology field but it can also be adjusted with various cardiac applications such as Emory Cardiac Toolbox and Cedars AutoQuant.

High definition PET reconstruction and 4D PET/CT imaging, which is optional, are included to enhance the image quality, reconstruction and accuracy with patient motion management.

The GEMINI LXL PET / CT scanner will be released in the second quarter of 2010.
