From the first electromedical devices in to the latest PET hybrid technologies, we have a long history of pioneering technological achievements that have helped make the A Focus on Return on Innovation Driven by this passion to make a difference, the core of Siemens Molecular Imaging is based upon the assumption that achieving the highest technical performance is only important when it meets the needs of our customers and the patients they serve.

To gain a deep understanding of our impossible possible. This cooperation is the driving force improved healthcare. From the earliest stages of budgets in the medical imaging industry, research, product development and design, has made Siemens an undisputed we rely upon the advice and innovation leader in molecular imaging.

As a result, our products are able to offer you the highest return on innovation possible. At the same time, healthcare is facing the dual mandates to improve patient safety and increase productivity, while ensuring the highest quality and cost-efficient patient care. Introducing the new Biograph mCT Our dedicated team of molecular imaging experts have helped shape the diagnostic imaging world with their inventions and ideas.

And we are continuing this tradition of innovation by continuously pioneering new technologies. No matter which way you look meet the following three criteria: at it, Siemens Molecular Imaging is helping you to expand your Return on Innovation. Biograph mCT — molecular CT. Inaccurate quantification may mislead treatment response monitoring.

Longer examination times lead to fewer patients per day, and unnecessary dose could compromise patient safety. The new Biograph mCT. In addition, innovative CARE technologies ensure the lowest possible dose is administered. With the new Biograph mCT, now you can detect, characterize and monitor the tiniest cancer lesions with reproducible quantification, making cancer treatment more cost effective.

Now you can quantify absolute myocardial blood flow, making more accurate treatment decisions, minimizing risk to your patients. Now, more than ever, you are able to rely on molecular imaging with quantification that is accurate and reproducible. For results that will redefine clinical decision making.

The confirmation you need for more diagnostic certainty and more informed treatment planning. Study after study. Scan after scan. Without question. Data on file. Due to regulatory reasons its future availability cannot be guaranteed. Intelligently ReproducibleQuantification8 9. Intelligently Reproducible QuantificationIntelligently In order to help physicians make sound decisions, imaging must not only be quantifiable —Reproducible it must be accurate and consistent.

With conventional technology, customers face the issueQuantification of variability in results due to both software and hardware challenges. Inherent scanner drift and inaccurate attenuation correction through misregistration of anatomical andFinest Volumetric functional images have a direct impact on reproducibility and accuracy of acquiredImage Accuracy quantitative data.

In addition, standard measurement techniques and inter-user variability affect accurate diagnostic results. Minimum Dose and Now, for the first time, Biograph mCT gives you quantifiable results that are precise.
