Molecular imaging is unlike any other imaging technology. It enables the search for the kind of discovery that provides reproducible evidence of what is seen and often not seen. We call this a true discovery.
It’s the type of discovery that gives you confidence in the accuracy of what you see and in your ability to find disease sooner. It goes hand-in-hand with your drive to provide the best possible patient outcomes for as many patients as you can. To do this, you need more than quality images and accurate quantitation. You also need imaging technology that allows you to cost effectively grow your practice and reach people living in remote places.
Our mission is to give you the tools you need to provide the best possible patient outcomes to more people in more places. We can accomplish this by providing you with a high-performance system that produces quality images with less dose that can also easily accommodate your needs as they grow. But to truly reach more people, you need the same clinically impactful technologies on a system that is mobile ready.
his is exactly what we designed Discovery™ IQ to do. We put as much energy into the efficiency, productivity and profitability of its design as we did into its revolutionary technologies, allowing you to get the most out of your asset. We built it on a mobile-ready platform and engineered a new PET detector technology called LightBurst. It provides quality images with accurate quantitative information, but also addresses key factors like dose and scan times. We also made it scalable, which gives you the flexibility to start with a two-ring detector and gradually upgrade up to a five-ring detector.
No matter what your clinical environment may be, Discovery IQ is the right PET/CT solution to help you bring true discovery to more people.
With Discovery IQ, we had two main goals. We wanted to build a system with the clinical solutions that high-performance clinical environments require. But we also wanted to make those solutions accessible to providers looking to bring PET/CT capabilities to new communities and remote locations.
We focused on the variables that directly affect clinical outcomes to develop technology that really makes a difference, an innovative PET detector that cuts scan times and dose amounts in half.1 The LightBurst PET Detector technology was the result. Along with the highest clinical NECR for18 F and the highest NEMA sensitivity ratings in the industry, it has Dual Acquisition Channels to give you the high-count recovery needed to deliver quantitative accuracy.2 It does more than increase the clarity of the image. It increases the speed that you acquire it, helps to reduce the dose you expose your patient to and aids in strengthening your confidence to see smaller lesions.
To make Discovery IQ accessible to more people in more places, we designed it on a mobile-ready platform. We also designed it to be scalable. Depending on your clinical needs, you can start with a two-ring configuration and gradually upgrade to the five-ring configuration with a large, 26 cm field-of-view coverage.
We paired this innovative detector technology with a CT system designed to meet your routine imaging needs. Optima™ CT540 has the equivalent speed of a 50-slice CT with IQE 1.75 pitch booster.3 Its excellent signal management delivers outstanding image quality in signal starved areas like shoulders, hips, areas with metal and in larger patients. In addition, ASiR™ reconstruction keeps dose low4 and a 0.5 second rotation speed combined with 20 mm coverage delivers fast exams with short breath holds.
