With Discovery IQ, we had two main goals. We wanted to build a system with the clinical solutions that high-performance clinical environments require. But we also wanted to make those solutions accessible to providers looking to bring PET/CT capabilities to new communities and remote locations.
We focused on the variables that directly affect clinical outcomes to develop technology that really makes a difference, an innovative PET detector that cuts scan times and dose amounts in half.1 The LightBurst PET Detector technology was the result. Along with the highest clinical NECR for18 F and the highest NEMA sensitivity ratings in the industry, it has Dual Acquisition Channels to give you the high-count recovery needed to deliver quantitative accuracy.2 It does more than increase the clarity of the image. It increases the speed that you acquire it, helps to reduce the dose you expose your patient to and aids in strengthening your confidence to see smaller lesions.
To make Discovery IQ accessible to more people in more places, we designed it on a mobile-ready platform. We also designed it to be scalable. Depending on your clinical needs, you can start with a two-ring configuration and gradually upgrade to the five-ring configuration with a large, 26 cm field-of-view coverage.
We paired this innovative detector technology with a CT system designed to meet your routine imaging needs. Optima™ CT540 has the equivalent speed of a 50-slice CT with IQE 1.75 pitch booster.3 Its excellent signal management delivers outstanding image quality in signal starved areas like shoulders, hips, areas with metal and in larger patients. In addition, ASiR™ reconstruction keeps dose low4 and a 0.5 second rotation speed combined with 20 mm coverage delivers fast exams with short breath holds.
