A quantum leap in PET/CT imaging
For nuclear medicine clinicians and researchers at Switzerland’s Inselspital, Bern University Hospital, being the first site to install Biograph Vision Quadra™ marked the conclusion of a process that began when their team crossed the Atlantic to consult with Siemens Healthineers as they designed the next-generation whole-body PET/CT scanner.

The best of both worlds
Scientists and physicians from Siemens Healthineers
describe the motivations and innovations behind the development of a PET/CT
scanner that combines the best of both worlds: an extended axial field of view
(FoV) with industry-leading detector technology.
In pediatrics, young patients may not be able to communicate the exact location and intensity of the pain they’re experiencing. Nuclear medicine physicians are learning how to share visual findings from SPECT/CT with referring orthopedic surgeons, resulting in improved collaboration and outcomes.
