Eigenschaften & Vorteile

Engineered for new research dimensions

With 106 cm axial PET field of view, Biograph Vision Quadra offers a whole-body (vertex to thighs) perspective so you can scan more in one position to dynamically follow tracer kinetics throughout the body. And with best-in-class time-of-flight performance and PET effective sensitivity,1 you can see with outstanding clarity. From tumor perfusion over time, to diverse physiological processes, to pediatric imaging and more, Biograph Vision Quadra exponentially expands your realm of investigation.


Developed to reshape clinical outcomes

The accuracy, performance, and reproducibility of Biograph Vision are the gold standard in PET/CT imaging. With Biograph Vision Quadra, you achieve the same outstanding detail and definition that you have come to expect—increased detectability of smaller lesions, reduced scan time and effective dose, and faster evaluation of treatment impact.2 And now with higher effective sensitivity gained from a 106 cm axial PET field of view and the best time of flight,1 no matter your imaging application, Biograph Vision Quadra delivers proven clinical outcomes at a greater scale.


Designed for your realities

When envisioning the first whole-body PET/CT scanner, a key consideration was designing a system that fits into your existing environment. With a 106 cm axial PET field of view, you can perform a whole-body scan in one position on a machine built for the same space as a traditional PET/CT scanner. Our innovative architecture is designed for easy serviceability, efficient data management, and enhanced workflows. With Biograph Vision Quadra, you have research and clinical solution designed for your realities.
