How Does a Siemens Biograph Scanner Detect Cancer?
A Siemens Biograph scanner detects cancer by capturing images of the metabolism of nuclear material in the body. Gamma rays, emitted by a small amount of nuclear material injected into the patient’s blood stream, are captured by the scanner. The resulting images are analyzed by doctors to detect cancer activity.
“Specifically, PET studies evaluate the metabolism of a particular organ or tissue, so that information about the physiology (functionality) and anatomy (structure) of the organ or tissue is evaluated, as well as its biochemical properties. Thus, PET may detect biochemical changes in an organ or tissue that can identify the onset of a disease process before anatomical changes related to the disease can be seen with other imaging processes such as computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).”Source: Hopkins Medicine
The Importance of Early Detection
The unique ability of PET/CT scanners, such as the Siemens Biograph, to detect early signs of cancer, has revolutionized cancer treatment and brought hope and healing to many people impacted by cancer. If cancer is detected early, a patient has a higher chance of recovery. World Cancer Day 2019 highlighted the importance of early detection. Early detection and diagnosis have been shown to improve survival rates and quality of life in cancer patients. Both the cost and complexity of treatment are reduced when cancer is detected early. We are proud to supply clinics nationwide with the technology they need to provide life-saving medical treatment.
