Enhanced lesion detectability and accurate quantitative imaging

White Paper
Philips NM Clinical Science Philips Healthcare • USA

Astonish TF and Ă—Pand5

This paper highlights the key technological advances and refinements in the Ingenuity TF PET/CT system responsible for achieving imaging improvements. Astonish TF technology provides improvements in TOF performance, detector geometry, and reconstruction. The ×Pand5 features offer quantitative imaging tools that translate into both improved lesion detectability and more accurate quantification.

Enhanced lesion detectability and the quantitative information provided by today’s advanced positron emission tomography (PET) scanners in the clinical fields of oncology, neurology, and cardiology are increasingly transforming the way that patients are diagnosed and managed. Quantification, lesion detectability, and diagnostic confidence are important for daily clinical routine use.

Advances in molecular imaging technologies incorporated in the Philips Ingenuity TF PET/CT system, such as fast LYSO scintillators with Time-of-Flight (TOF) performance, high count-rate capability, excellent spatial resolution, full-fidelity list mode, line of response (LOR) TOF reconstruction, and high-precision data corrections, have led to improvements in diagnostic PET image quality and quantitative accuracy. As a result, Ingenuity TF offers high-quality images with TOF-enhanced lesion detectability that better characterize physiological function and provide a truer representation of the distribution of the radiopharmaceutical...
