State-of-the-Art Imaging Equipment
New imaging technology includes GE Medical System’s Discovery PET/CT scanner. This system integrates a Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scanner with a 64-slice Computer Tomography (CT) scanner capable of producing 2D, and 3D images. Combined imaging capabilities are designed to assist physicians diagnose and localize cancers faster with pinpoint precision. The PET/CT has sophisticated software for respiratory-gated studies allowing direct interface with Radiation Oncology’s 4D treatment planning system. 4D imaging offers real-time viewing of the anatomy in motion for more precise tumor contour visualization.
Images and reports are available for convenient review by referring physicians on-site or in their office. The PET/CT provides seamless integration with radiation oncology further enhancing our ability to treat malignancies. The system is also capable of neurology diagnostics and non-invasive cardiac imaging.
- GE’s Discovery VCT PET/CT: PET scanner combined with a high resolution 64-slice CT
- Infinia 4 SPECT/CT: Nuclear medicine tomography enhanced with 64-slice CT imaging
- Digirad 2020tc: Solid state portable nuclear medicine imaging
The PET/CT imager is designed with the patient in mind. The large bore size (70cm) accommodates patients of all shapes and sizes and the shorter tunnel length (100 cm) lessens claustrophobic anxiety. The imaging rooms are large, roomy, and aesthetically pleasing.
