GE Signa HDxt
GE Signa HDxT3.0T has the unique hardware advantage of two sets of gradient coils, and was designed around X-technology extreme imaging. This concept comprehensively improves the collection, distribution and reconstruction of the radio frequency data chain, and takes HDxT3.0T full-body scanning and scientific research from excellent to truly remarkable. It achieves imaging ranging from breast scanning to functional metabolism imaging. It continues to provide the classic GE advantage for clinical study of the nervous system. Its unique full-body cancer screening technology can clearly show cancer anywhere in the body. It also uses unique clinical brain function technology, providing images which directly help clinicians locate the foci of epileptic seizures.
Siemens Biograph 64
The Siemens Biograph 64 PET/CT system organically combines new positive emission tomography (PET) technology with Siemens fastest 64-slice CT scanning system, Somatom 64. The Biograph 64 has an extremely short data acquisition time, allowing it to record more detailed and dynamic heart images. The system perfectly combines the two technologies, making it especially applicable to cardiovascular diagnosis.
The PET-CT image scanning system is the product of a combination of positive emission tomography (PET) and computed tomography scan (CT) technology. The PET-CT imaging system is capable of functional (metabolism) imaging using a PET scan. These images show the spatial distribution of metabolic or biochemical activities in the human body. At the same time, CT scans can provide precise anatomical imaging. The information from the two scans work together to significantly enhance the accuracy of disease diagnosis and staging.
The images produced by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are very similar to CT images, and both are “digital images,” displaying the images of anatomical and pathological cross-sections of different structures with different greyscales. Just as CT scans, MRI is useful in scanning different diseases of nearly all the systems of the body, such as the examination of cancer, inflammation, wounds, degenerative changes, all kinds of congenital diseases, etc. As research into all kinds of rapid scanning sequences and 3-D sampling scanning technologies and their successful clinical application continues, new technologies such as magnetic resonance angiography and cinematography have stepped into the clinical realm and have become increasingly better.
