MALVERN, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--At the 2013 annual meeting of the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI), June 8-12 in Vancouver, B.C., Canada, Siemens Healthcare (booth 720) will introduce Biograph mCT Flow – a groundbreaking new positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) system that, for the first time ever, overcomes the limitations of conventional bed-based PET/CT with FlowMotion, a revolutionary new technology that moves the patient smoothly through the system’s gantry, while continuously acquiring PET data. Biograph mCT Flow with FlowMotion takes routine image quality to a new level by enabling imaging protocols based on the organ’s need. FlowMotion expands accurate and reproducible quantification in all dimensions for precise disease characterization in therapy monitoring, while enabling physicians to offer as low as reasonably achievable (ALARA) dose to every patient. Additionally, the combination of a 78 cm bore with five-minute ultra fast scanning and a continuous sense of progress throughout the scan provides the patient with a more comfortable exam experience. The new Biograph mCT Flow PET•CT system with FlowMotion technology demonstrates Siemens’ innovation and competitiveness— key components of the Healthcare Sector’s Agenda 2013 two-year initiative.
