Designed to take full advantage of Siemens Healthinineers’ premium PET and CT technologies of the BiographTM Horizon1 family of scanners, Biograph RT edition provides clinicians the right image for the right plan.
Fine Image Quality
Biograph RT edition is built upon the OptisoHD detection system, which optimizes each component of the imaging chain, from the design of the isotropic LSO crystals to the highspeed electronics.
Siemens ultraHD•PET delivers increased image quality, easily outperforming conventional PET/CT technology. It combines two important innovations: HD•PET, which provides visually sharper clinical images;2 and Time-of-Flight (ToF), which doubles signal-to-noise. These image-quality improvements enhance tumor boundary definition.
Biograph RT edition is built upon our proven SOMATOM® Perspective CT platform, providing excellent temporal and high-contrast CT resolution for accurate radiation therapy planning.
Extended CT Field of View
HD FoV is an advanced algorithm using intelligent contour and attenuation estimation outside the diagnostic CT field of view (sFoV) of 50 cm.
Metal Artifact Reduction
Biograph RT edition provides a comprehensive metal artifact solution, which includes iterative metal artifact reduction (iMAR) software that is fully integrated into the PET/CT workflow and can be used for PET attenuation correction. Also included is CT single-source dual-energy with syngo®.CT Dual Energy Monoenergetic solution, which delivers "crisp" image quality of the anatomy even in the presence of metal for RT planning.
