Siemens Healthineers is debuting a mobile configuration of its Biograph Horizon PET/CT system at this week’s Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging annual conference in San Diego. The company received FDA clearance for the Biograph Horizon earlier this year.
The new version of Biograph Horizon is intended for healthcare facilities that don’t have the patient volume to support installation of a fixed PET/CT, Siemens officials say. The mobile configuration also might help consolidated health systems tailor their imaging delivery strategy in diverse service areas.
Migrating technology from the company’s Biograph line of PET/CT systems to help providers address more clinical indications in oncology, neurology, and cardiology while also introducing new efficiencies, Biograph Horizon enables physicians to visualize small lesions early. The system also yields high image resolution, in addition to enabling Time-of- Flight acquisition. By receiving more detailed patient data earlier, clinicians may stage disease and evaluate therapy response more accurately, contributing to more effective care pathways.
With the addition of the mobile version of Biograph Horizon, all Biograph PET/CT systems from Siemens Healthineers are now available in mobile and fixed configurations.
