Features & Benefits
TrueV high-speed technology widens the axial field of view (aFoV) and features 30% fewer bed positions when compared to a standard aFoV. With an increased peak noise equivalent count (NEC) rate of more than 60%,1 you can lower injected dose or scan time. For example, a scan time can be reduced from 20 minutes to 10 minutes or 50% less dose injected in the patient. TrueV equals ½ injected dose or 2x speed due to 60% increase in NEC performance.
Combine TrueV with ultraHD•PET
ultraHD•PET and TrueV as combined technologies make a five-minute PET scan possible–unprecedented for a routine clinical exam. ultraHD•PET + TrueV equals ½ injected dose and 2x speed due to 60% increase in NEC performance and a 2x improvement in signal to noise.
- 2x lower dose or 2x faster scan speed
- Increased organ coverage
- Increased system sensitivity
- Capability of either increased patient throughput
or improved image quality
TrueV + ultraHD•PET
- Provides 2x lower dose
- Offers 2x faster scan speed
- Provides 2x improvement in signal to noise
Expected system downtime for upgrade is five days.
Compared to PMT based Biograph PET/CT scanners without TrueV option.
