Siemens Inveon PET/CT docked

Inveon is a revolutionary preclinical imaging platform, providing integrated small animal PET,SPECT and CT imaging and analysis. A brilliant combination of cutting-edge technologies with multiple configuration options to fit your research needs, Inveon becomes an invaluable part of your research workflow. Inveon is available as a fully integrated or dockable system with single or multimodality configurations.

Inveon technology utilizes an asynchronous coincidence processing architecture which virtually eliminates electronic dead time and substantially improves count rate performance and peak NEC.

Siemens detectors provide high sensitivity through a combination of dense, 10 mm thick LSO crystals and very thin inter-pixel reflector layers as well as through careful design of the detector ring geometry. Absolute sensitivity in the center of the FOV is greater than or equal to 10%.

Combining the high light output of LSO with 1.6 mm x 1.6 mm detector pixel spacing, the Inveon delivers 1.4 mm FWHM (at center of field of view) spatial resolution in images reconstructed using the filtered back projection algorithm. Higher reconstructed image resolution can be achieved with Siemens’ suite of iterative reconstruction algorithms.

New detector design provides an axial FOV of 12.7 cm. In addition, continuous bed motion effectively extends the axial FOV to 30 cm on the Inveon dedicated PET system. This provides temporal data over the entire axial FOV and offers better image quality due to the over-sampling of each projection.
