Philips Unveils First Digital Detector PET/CT System at RSNA 2013
Philips unveiled the Vereos PET/CT fully digital positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) imaging system at the Radiological Society of North America Annual Meeting (RSNA 2013) in Chicago.
Based on Philips' proprietary digital photon counting technology, the Vereos PET/CT is the first PET/CT system in the industry to use digital silicon photomultiplier detectors instead of traditional analog detectors, resulting in a step change in performance that approximately doubles sensitivity gain, volumetric resolution and quantitative accuracy compared to analog systems. These radical improvements can ultimately be translated into high image quality, increased diagnostic confidence, improved treatment planning and faster workflows.
