Features & Benefits

Siemens Healthineers Biograph mCT
  1. Exclusive bed design and wide bore
    Zero differential deflection for accurate attenuation correction and TG-66 compliant along with a 78-cm bore to support bariatric imaging and easier positioning of radiation oncology devices
  2. LSO crystals
    4 x 4 x 20 mm for fast scintillation with great detection efficiency for any PET isotope, even short-lived cardiac isotopes
  3. CT capability

    Definition class CT offers 40-, 64-, or 128-Edge-slice CT configurations

  4. iMAR

    Iterative algorithm for metal artifact reduction

  5. SAFIRE

    CT iterative reconstruction to reduce dose and maintain image quality

  6. Whole-body dynamic imaging
    Routine whole-body dynamic imaging enable by FlowMotion™ continuous bed motio

  7. Time of flight

    Up to 2x improvements in signal to noise and image contrast

  8. TrueV extended PET field of view

    Additional PET detector ring enabling faster scans or lower injected dose

  9. HD•PET

    Create visually sharper images incorporating point spread function (PSF)

  10. QualityGuard
    Uses intrinsic radioactive properties of Lutetium present on LSO detectors to automatically calibrate itself

  11. FlowMotion AI

    Personalize scans based on anatomy and standardize imaging protocols based on indication

  12. FAST PET Workflow AI

    Creation of Auto Ranges and Auto Data Export

  13. Multiparametric PET Suite AI

    Adds the metabolic rate and distribution volume to the standard SUV image without the need for an invasive measurement

  14. OncoFreeze™ / OncoFreeze AI
    Motion management without extending scan time and, if preferred, without the need for a gating device

Biograph mCT may include features such as FlowMotion continuous bed motion and TrueV1, which increases the axial field of view to enable two times faster scans or half the injected dose without compromising image quality. Other available features like time of flight1 show up to 200% improvement in signal to-noise ratio2 for better image quality, lower dose or faster scan speed.
