Image Review with Celesteion™ PUREViSION Edition PET/CT

The PET/CT viewer on Celesteion™ PUREViSION Edition PET/CT includes automated fused MPR images and can be batched and sent to multiple DICOM destinations.

The technologist sets the fused percentage along with start points, end points and slice thickness needed for interpretation. With a single click images are created and sent to PACS.

SUV measurements as well as previous study comparisons can be done directly on the Celesteion™ PUREViSION Edition PET/CT console.

More efficient use of X-rays

PUREVISION Detector Technology

* Calculated based on TOF sensitivity gain=(SNR gain)2=D/Δx, D: patient size, Δx: TOF spatial uncertainty.
(Δx=cΔt/2, c=speed of light=3x1010 cm/sec, Δt=TOF FWHM =394 ps=3.94x10-10sec, Δx =5.91 cm. NEMA sensitivity =4.0 cps/kBq,
For D=20 cm, (SNR gain)2 =20/5.91=3.4, effective sensitivity =4.0x3.4=13.5 cps/kBq
For D=35 cm, (SNR gain)2 =35/5.91=5.9, effective sensitivity =4.0x5.9=23.7 cps/kBq)
System energy resolution, TOF timing resolution, effective system sensitivity and PSF reconstruction spatial resolution are all typical values.

**Effective Peak NECR: based on NEMA (non-TOF) Peak NECR and TOF SNR gain calculated above. (NEMA Peak NECR≥51 kcps, effective peak NECR=NEMA peak NECR x (TOF sensitivity gain) ≥ (51x3.4)=172 kcps with D=20 cm and (51x5.9)=302 kcps with D=35 cm)

WARNING: Any reference to X-ray exposure, intravenous contrast dosage, and other medication is intended as a reference guideline only. The guidelines in this document do not substitute for the judgment of a healthcare provider. Each scan requires medical judgment by the healthcare provider about exposing the patient to ionizing radiation. Use the As Low As Reasonably Achievable (ALARA) radiation dose principle to balance factors such as the patient’s condition, size and age; region to be imaged; and diagnostic task.

Disclaimer: In clinical practice, the use of the AIDR 3D feature may reduce CT patient dose depending on the clinical task, patient size, anatomical location and clinical practice. A consultation with a radiologist and a physicist should be made to determine the appropriate dose to obtain diagnostic image quality for the particular clinical task.
