Time-Of-Flight technology within your reach

Philips TruFlight Select PET/CT system

As the leader in Time-of-Flight (ToF) technology, Philips introduces another first. State-of-the-art TOF PET technology is now standard across the family of PET/CT systems. Never before has TOF been so accessible. TOF is an inherent feature in every Philips PET/CT system. The TruFlight Select PET/CT provides customers with enhanced image quality and speed. Diagnostic CT capabilities allow the system to be used not only for PET/CT scans, but also for standalone CT scans, thereby serving a dual purpose. Philips has optimized its systems technologically, clinically, and operationally to fit within your individual needs.

Key advantages
  • Cost-saving benefits from low system costs and the ability to utilize short lived isotopes
  • Time-of-Flight provides exceptional image quality
  • Enhanced speed, productivity and throughput with the Extended Brilliance Workspace for Nuclear Medicine


High value investment


Philips was the first to commercially launch TOF technology and we have continued to perfect it over the years. Philips ToF provides outstanding image quality and solid results. Through our clinical leadership, we are able to provide it at exceptional prices.
 In conventional PET imaging, it’s only possible to  know that a coincident event has taken place on  the line of response, but not the actual location  of the event. Time-Of-Flight technology uses the actual time difference between  the detection of coincident events to more accurately identify the  origin of the annihilation. Better identification leads to a quantifiable  improvement in image quality.

Enhances the patient experience
The Philips patented OpenView gantry design enhances the patient experience, especially for claustrophobic and pediatric patients, and provides patient access for clinicians.

Provides optimized workflow
The TruFlight Select PET/CT offers streamlined operations including QC workflow, system startup and shutdown, and QC alignment. The Extended Brilliance Workspace for Nuclear Medicine (EBW NM) is an optional comprehensive portfolio of applications, providing PET, SPECT, and CT on the same platform for improved access, connectivity, filming, and reporting.
