Clinical Uses for the Siemens Biograph 16 TruPoint

The Siemens Biograph 16 improves the patient experience by virtue of the faster scan speeds and low patient doses it enables. An ideal system for smaller oncology clinic settings, the Biograph 16 “offers 2 mm uniform PET resolution throughout the field of view and a two-time improvement in signal-to-noise ratio, which provides for small lesion detection,” according to MedGadget. How is fast scanning and low patient radiation dose accomplished? Through the Siemens TrueV extended PET field of view. Thanks to this feature, providers can achieve scans either twice as fast, or at half the patient dose.
