What is BGO?

Bismuth germanium oxide, or BGO, is one of the types of scintillation crystals used in clinical PET imaging. The other crystals used are gadolinium oxyorthosilicate (GSO) and lutetium oxyorthosilicate (LSO). In the Ecat Exact and other scanner models, BGO crystals are coupled with photomultiplier tubes in the detectors of the PET camera system. The camera system includes multiple rings of detectors.

“The ring design utilizes the concept that two photons detected in close temporal proximity (on the order of 6 to 12 nanoseconds) by two opposed detectors in the ring are likely to have originated from a single annihilation event in the body, somewhere along a line between the two detectors. Such a simultaneous detection is termed a ‘coincidence.’ All of the coincidence events detected during an imaging period are recorded by the PET computer system as a raw data set. As in single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) examinations in nuclear medicine, the coincidence data in PET is reconstructed by a computer to produce cross-sectional images in the axial, sagittal, and coronal planes.”

The images produced by the Ecat Exact help doctors diagnose cancer, brain disease, and heart disease, and have the potential to be used for even more medical applications. When you invest in an Ecat Exact Hr+ from Marquis, you can save up to half the cost of new on this critical piece of medical imaging equipment.
