Meaningful Insights.<br>From Your Patient to Every Patient.
A true discovery is what you are after. You aspire to not only help change the lives of the patients you see every day, but to establish new standards. This is what makes molecular imaging so exciting. While lesion detection, low dose, fast scans and image resolution are important, molecular imaging is more than that. It's about guiding treatment, supporting patients with sensitive care and creating an environment for compelling research. It requires technology that couldn't have been designed without our understanding of what continuously challenges you.
Challenges such as improving survival rates for those afflicted with cancer, expanding the diagnostic capabilities of PET and working with a revenue-generating system that permits you to work toward your aspirations.
Meet DiscoveryTM MI. A PET/CT system conceptualized with lofty goals, equal only to your own. It was created to help you diagnose and stage disease earlier and better guide your treatment strategies. It was designed with the hope you can conduct more compelling research more often with more novel, faster decaying tracers; permitting you to push the boundaries of PET. And it was built with capabilities aimed to more economically support increased patient volumes so your facility doesn't need to sacrifice advanced clinical work to accelerate its research initiatives.
We understand these are the types of outcomes you want to achieve. Discovery MI was engineered to help you get there. By delivering what you need for meaningful insights, we look forward to your next true discovery - something we all need.
Engineered for Precision
The LightBurst Digital Detector is the critical next step of our vision for a digital future for PET. It combines a small lutetium-based scintillator crystal array with a Silicon Photomultiplier (SiPM) bloc design for high NEMA sensitivity of 14 cps/kBq and a large 20 cm extended axial FOV. This state-of-the-art PET detection technology delivers significant improvements over TOF-analog technology in scan times, required dose levels and small lesion detectability.
Discovery MI is the only PET/CT system that brings together the sensitivity of digital detection with the most innovative reconstruction technology available, the combination of Time-of-Flight and Q.Clear. The result is outstanding resolution to improve the detection of small lesions.
In addition to advancements in reconstruction and detection technology, Discovery MI includes diagnostic CT innovations from our RevolutionTM EVO. It combines the Clarity Imaging System with the speed of the PerformixTM 40 Plus tube with our proprietary HiLight CT detector to deliver up to a 2x increase in spatial resolution. Our innovative ASiR-VTM iterative reconstruction method comes standard to reduce CT dose by up to 82 percent at the same image quality in routine imaging across applications. And with Smart MAR virtually eliminating streaks and shadows from metal artifacts, you’ll save valuable time previously spent correcting images. Designed with a purpose, with you in mind, this CT technology is the ideal fit for Discovery MI.
