The Siemens Biograph 6 Slice PET/CT Scanner is a whole-body oncology, neurology and cardiology examinations on a compact footprint

Siemens Biograph 6 Slice PET/CT Scanner

Siemens Biograph Overview

The Biograph 16 is designed for whole-body oncology, neurology and cardiology examinations. The combined PET/CT scanner is intended for use as a clinic, whole-body oncology machine with high-end spiral CT and PET performance. The CT component provides fast attenuation correction for PET studies as well as precise anatomical reference through fused PET and CT images. In addition, the PET/CT system maintains independent functionality of the PET and CT scanning systems, allowing for most standard stand-alone CT and PET clinical diagnostic protocols to be available as well.
