With standalone diagnostic CT capability


A system ready to leverage software innovations and digital solutions

Discovery™ MI DR is a premium PET/CT system with the added flexibility of a standalone diagnostic CT. A PET/CT system ready for true discovery.

It delivers the accurate, reproducible results referring physicians require and the added clinical versatility you need to expand your practice beyond FDG and oncology. Our vision for the future of molecular imaging is all-digital, from the technology you use, to data collection, to processing software, all the way through to the applications you use to interpret and communicate information.

We designed a PET/CT system with leading edge technology that stays at the leading edge, even as your needs change.

Our mission is to help you in yours by providing you with the important instruments you need to deliver better patient outcomes and by putting you in the position to continue to meet every clinical challenge you encounter.

High PET sensitivity and count rate performance to image all tracers

The LightBurst LBS Detector is designed for speed and efficiency. This uniquely configured detector has an unmatched 25 mm Lutetium-based scintillator (LBS) that delivers the high sensitivity needed to capture the greatest number of counts. We designed it so that it can easily be updated to the LightBurst Digital Detector if in the future your practice should require it.

Discovery MI DR brings together 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 as well as repeatable accuracy for every SUV measurement from one exam to the next.

Clinically versatile system

In addition to advancements in reconstruction and quantitation technology, Discovery MI DR includes diagnostic CT innovations from our Revolution™ EVO. It combines the Clarity Imaging System with the speed of the Performix™ 40 Plus tube with our proprietary HiLight CT detector to deliver up to a 2x increase in spatial resolution when used with ASiR-V™ 1. Our innovative ASiR-V iterative reconstruction method is an option that can also reduce CT dose by up to 82 percent at the same image quality in routine imaging across applications1,2. And with Smart MAR virtually eliminating streaks and shadows from metal artifacts, you’ll save valuable time previously spent correcting images.

Bring meaningful insights to every clinical challenge

Discovery MI DR is a limitlessly versatile PET/CT system. It effectively and efficiently images the patients you see every day with faster scan times, low dose and accurate quantitation. But it also opens the door to imaging your most clinically challenging cases.

Smart MAR metal artifact reduction makes it possible to clearly scan patients with metal implants. Its uniquely configured PET detector gives you the high sensitivity needed to explore high-count-rate protocols for imaging alternative tracers.

In addition to providing comprehensive PET oncology analysis to monitor cancer treatments, Discovery MI DR can be used to address clinical challenges beyond oncology to include cardiac and brain imaging.

Secure your investment with a platform ready at any time for a transition to digital detector technology

To make our fully digital vision a reality, we created a platform that’s ready today to leverage software innovations capable of collecting data and converting it into insight-driven analytics. We also made it modular in design, which means transitioning to digital detection is as simple as exchanging the detector technology.

Discovery MI DR is ready for each newly developed analytics application and, because of its modular design, it’s ready for already-available digital detection technology. This allows you to acquire the system that fits your needs today knowing that we can help you easily and cost effectively upgrade to a different system if your practice requires it.

1 In clinical practice, the use of ASiR-V 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. Low Contrast Detectability (LCD), Image Noise, Spatial Resolution and Artifact were assessed using reference factory protocols comparing ASiR-V and FBP. The LCD measured in 0.625 mm slices and tested for both head and body modes using the MITA CT IQ Phantom (CCT183, The Phantom Laboratory), using model observer method.
