Recently GE Healthcare announced the release of its Optima PET/CT 560, which designed to address the demands of today’s healthcare environment, combining superb image quality, high productivity and a patient friendly experience that can continuously deliver ongoing value over time.
The Optima PET/CT 560 was designed to help physicians put patients’ needs first from the uninterrupted full head-to-toe exam to the dose reduction features. Clinicians can complete a full head-to-toe scan in one pass for greater patient comfort and convenience, with less need for repositioning patients, potentially saving up to 15 minutes per exam.
Advanced GE VUE Point HD intelligent 3D iterative reconstruction technique enhances resolution for uncompromised image quality that helps enable clinicians to confidently detect small lesions and increase quantitative accuracy.
ASiR* dose reduction technology on the Optima PET/CT 560 may allow for reduced mA in the acquisition of diagnostic images, thereby reducing the required dose of radiation exposure especially in pediatric exams to meet ALARA (as low as reasonably achievable) guidelines. In addition, the Optima PET/CT 560 uses a 3-D modulation algorithm which maintains CT image quality, yet dose is reduced up to 40 percent.
The user interface is simplified for fast exam setup, and the compact and ergonomic operator console is designed for flexibility and comfort. Fast reconstruction times deliver images to clinicians sooner, allowing decision-making before a patient is even off the table.
The Optima PET/CT 560 offers investment protection with the capability to grow with the future needs of the clinical practice.
