Características e Benefícios

The demand for value-based care continues to grow. In response, healthcare providers are finding new ways to improve care pathways while driving down long-term asset costs. Biograph Horizon2 helps you offset these expenses, expand your clinical capabilities and simplify your operations.


Reach more patients

Clinical Versatility
Use all commercially available PET tracers to address a broader range of oncology, neurology and cardiac indications. With premium LSO-based detectors and Time-of-Flight technology, you can go beyond the capabilities of BGO-based3 PET/CT scanners for high count-rate applications.

Parameters: Weight: 80 kg; injected dose: 326 MBq; 8 beds, 2 min./bed.

Catch smaller lesions, earlier
Biograph Horizon’s high image quality supports early identification of distant metastasis, leading to a more accurate disease staging. These factors can help physicians determine an effective treatment strategy, reducing costs and patient side effects related to ineffective therapies.

To help you visualize small lesions, Biograph Horizon features a combination of technologies that enhance image quality and productivity.

syngo.via for Molecular Imaging
syngo.via® offers a suite of automated tools to instantly visualize diagnostic information, measure with confidence and report more comprehensively across a number of applications.
 

For example, with EQ•PET4 you can normalize SUV measurements across different scanners throughout your patients’ extended treatment plan for more precise calculation of changes in tumor uptake.


Do more with your time

Enhanced Productivity
Help your staff focus on what matters most: your patients. Biograph Horizon offers protocol-based exams to support a more standardized workflow and is equipped with built-in capabilities that automate routine tasks.

Value of patient satisfaction

A better workflow can lead to more satisfied patients
New efficiencies do more than free up staff time and reduce costs. They are seen and felt by the patients who have a simpler, faster, more positive experience at your facility. Biograph Horizon streamlines your day-to-day work, giving you more time to focus on your patients.
 

syngo.via offers up to 45%5 faster processing
Start reading your cases right away. syngo.via automates pre-fetching, pre-processing, and display and comparison of previous findings. And syngo.via’s ALPHA technology features automatic registration with exclusive organ-based recognition capabilities.
 


Create more opportunity

Especificações Técnicas

The finer points of a high-quality image

The value of PET/CT in patient care is in the details—more precise information leads to greater potential for an earlier diagnosis and a more definitive treatment strategy.
 

Our PET/CT technology foundation delivers excellent lesion detectability, spatial resolution and quantification accuracy. With this distinct level of quality and reproducibility, you can bring the standard of care to more patients.

Technology Foundation

The crystals
Siemens’ unique LSO crystals are grown in-house for consistent quality. Compared to BGO crystals3, they scintillate faster and have a higher light output, providing better image quality and enabling Time-of-Flight.
 

The detector
The smaller the crystals, the sharper the image. Biograph Horizon2’s OptisoHD detectors feature LSO crystals cut into 4 mm elements and arranged with no gaps between detector blocks to provide very high spatial resolution and lesion visualization.
 

Time-of-Flight
Biograph Horizon’s LSO-based detectors and high-speed electronics support Time-of-Flight6 for improved signal-to-noise ratio. This enables faster scans, lower injected dose and better image quality.
 

World-class CT
Siemens’ market-leading CT technologies further enhance your imaging capabilities. They also give you the ability to scan a wider variety of patients and more fully utilize your system. For example, SAFIRE6 lowers dose by up to 60%7, and iMAR6 reduces metal artifacts.
