Pediatric Molecular Imaging Solutions
Meet the unique needs of pediatric imaging with these SPECT/CT and PET/CT solutions.
You face 5 key challenges in pediatric molecular imaging: speed, sensitivity, movement, stress, and time. An ability to solve these challenges can impact everything from patient outcomes to patient and family satisfaction.
Molecular imaging solutions that are engineered to account for the challenges of pediatric imaging can help. See how our SPECT/CT and PET/CT systems can meet the unique needs of your pediatric patients.
Long molecular imaging exams can stress children and their families.
Still developing organs are more dose sensitive.
Protecting young, still growing organs from unnecessary dose is different than protecting adults. To meet these unique demands, you need solutions that support high-quality imaging at the lowest possible patient exposure.
Biograph Vision can help you reduce scan time and injected dose to boost productivity and lower the radiation exposure to the patients, all while also improving image quality and lesion detection. Combined with FlowMotion AI and the large 78cm bore, Biograph Vision is designed to reduce patient radiation exposure, provide a more comfortable experience for the patient, and decrease examination times.1
You can also provide significant dose reduction to your patients with our CARE (Combined Applications to Reduce Exposure) package on the Biograph family of PET/CT and Symbia family of SPECT/CT scanners.
Our SAFIRE2 iterative reconstruction can provide up to 60% lower radiation dose for your CT examinations without compromising image quality.
Low kV dedicated pediatric protocols on the Biograph family of PET/CT and Symbia family of SPECT/CT scanners can further improve pediatric imaging with a range of targeted solutions to minimize radiation exposure and maintain diagnostic image quality with every scan.
Young, active children find it harder to keep still.
Children and parents are often anxious.
Anything you can do to distract children during their imaging exam can help ease anxiety and support a better experience. During the exam, the e.Media option on the Symbia family of SPECT/CT scanners offers an integrated, high-quality video and sound system through our patient positioning monitor. With it, children can watch DVDs and videos, which can help reduce anxiety and stress.
Young patients need empathy—and you need time to provide it.
You can simplify and automate typically time-consuming and complex exams by using FAST (Fully Assisting Scanner Technologies) on the Biograph family of PET/CT and Symbia family of SPECT/CT systems. This can improve workflow efficiency, facilitate reproducible results (which can optimize outcomes and make diagnosis more reliable), and streamline examinations.
Once a PET/CT scan is complete, there are still many tasks to prepare an exam for reading, which means more time at the scanner and less time with patients. With FAST PET Workflow AI, the scanner automates and simplifies these tasks, transforming care delivery by optimizing clinical operations and increasing workforce productivity.

In clinical practice, the use of SAFIRE may reduce CT patient dose depending on the clinical task, patient size, anatomical location, and clinical practice. A consultation with a radiologist and a physicist should be made to determine the appropriate dose to obtain diagnostic image quality for the particular clinical task.
