Biograph 6

Biograph PET CTThe Biograph 6 (Siemens Medical Solutions USA, Inc.) is a dedicated research PET/CT for use in large animal and human studies. This is an LSO-based PET system with a 6-slice CT. The system boasts a 21.6 cm axial PET FOV with TrueV™ technology and a 190 cm patient scan range. This extended FOV also provides an increased sensivity and count rate performance. This system is equipped with HD•PET™ enabling point spread function-based reconstruction that provides improved resolution and a uniform FOV.

The CT system has an isotropic resolution of 0.33 mm with z-Sharp™ technology. Data from the CT unit are automatically registered to the acquired PET data. The CT data is used for attenuation and scatter correction enabling quantitative PET imaging with anatomical CT imaging.
