Learn What Makes the Siemens PET CT Biograph 64 Unique
The Siemens PET CT Biograph 64 is a 64-slice scanner suited to a variety of clinical needs, including oncology, cardiology, and neurology applications. This trusted system from Siemens is a favorite of cardiologists for its ability to detect blockages in the coronary arteries, as well as the pumping of the patient’s heart. The medical imaging field is constantly expanding, providing us with new insights into the workings of the human body as improvements to existing technology are made.

Why Choose the Siemens PET CT Biograph 64?
With 64 slices, each as thin as a credit card, the Biograph 64 can be used to study and evaluate all parts of a patient’s body. It is suitable for capturing images of the body organs: lungs, heart, stomach, intestines, pancreas, liver, kidneys, bladder, and more. It can also photograph glands, blood vessels, bones, and the spine.
How is a PET/CT Scan Performed?
To perform a scan using this Siemens PET CT Biograph scanner, clinicians will administer a small amount of radioactive material to the patient. Depending upon the body part or system being evaluated, the patient will either swallow, inhale, or receive an injection of this material.
After a waiting period, the patient will lie down on the PET/CT scanner table. The patient must lie very still during the scan in order to produce clear images. Fortunately, with a 64-slice scanner like this Siemens PET CT Biograph scanner, it only takes about 15 seconds to perform the complete scan.
