PET-CT scan

GE DISCOVERY MI DR PET/CT SYSTEM

A high-quality positron and computer dual-fusion scanning system can be used for the diagnosis and staging of early diseases (such as cancer, infection and inflammation) to help develop better treatment strategies. It brings together the most innovative image construction techniques, and the images constructed by the combination of time-of-flight and Q.Clear have excellent resolution. This increases the likelihood that small lesions will be detected and the accuracy of SUV measurements.
