Siemens Healthineers white PET/CT scanner

Biograph mCT Sim editionThe intelligent molecular RT simulator

Biograph™ mCT Sim edition features a large bore with access to intelligent imaging applications, making standardized protocols and personalized scans possible. Complex procedures, like PET motion-free imaging, can be transformed to an easy click of a button, and 4D CT workflow can be streamlined by automatically setting optimal scan parameters based on the patient’s breathing cycle. Biograph mCT Sim edition brings you a comprehensive solution for PET/CT in radiation therapy–driving the right planning for the right treatment.
