PET CT Wide Bore Scanner

Premium PMT Design

PET Detector

The Celesteion PET detector offers a unique design that incorporates photomultiplier tubes (PMT) of different sizes. This design provides a performance with highest performing Time-of Flight available on a PMT system. This coupled with the largest bore in PET imaging makes it a powerful tool for radiation oncology departments who look to incorporate PET data in therapy planning.

  • 4mm x 4mm Lu-based crystals
  • Unique detector design of mixed PMT sizes
  • 394 ps (typical) Time-of-Flight
  • Radial: FWHM@10cm 1.98mm*
  • Axial: FWHM@10cm 2.01mm*
  • Transaxial: FWHM@10cm 2.04mm*

Time of flight (TOF) and point spread function (PSF) technology for greater accuracy.

Celesteion PUREViSION edition with TOF and PSF reconstruction can improve image resolution and possibly allow better lesion detection and follow-up.

  • 394 ps typical TOF
  • PSF reconstruction
  • Optimal speed and image resolution
  • Improved lesion detection
  • Improved lesion localization
Reconstruction Techniques

Clear Adaptive Low-noise Method (CaLM)

  • Improved PET image quality with NLM filter(non-local-means)
  • Reduces noise and maintains contrast as compared to Local Means filtering
  • Mild, Standard, Strong settings
Clear Adaptive Low-noise Method (CaLM) +PSF
Reconstruction Techniques

Single Energy Metal Artifact Reduction (SEMAR)

Improved image quality.

Canon Medical Systems' SEMAR (Single Energy Metal Artifact Reduction) utilizes a reconstruction technique to reduce metallic artifact, improving visualization of implants, supporting bone and the adjacent soft tissues for a clearer and more confident diagnosis.

Multiplanar Reconstruction (MPR) comparison images show reduced metal artifact and improved visualization of surrounding tissue on both the CT and PET/CT fused images.

Image Review

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.

Image Review

Mirada XD3 Fusion Image Review

The ability to launch Mirada XD3 Fusion directly from the Vitrea advanced visualization solution will allow interpretation of CT, PET and Fused PET/CT images.

  • Axial, Coronal and Sagittal data sets can be synchronized for better workflow.
  • Automated SUV regions of interest can be measured on coronal MIP and visualized during 3D rotation of the data.

The combination of Vitrea with Mirada XD3 provides powerful image review capabilities, region quantification and tracking and a customizable reporting tool.
