Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital has announced the installation of the Biograph 64, Vision 600-PET CT scanner.
One of the main advantages of this technology is its capacity to deliver extremely accurate and comprehensive imaging, giving doctors a greater insight of illness development. This reduces the need for multiple scans, thereby minimising patient exposure to radiation and shortening the overall diagnostic process. Armed with this information, doctors can develop personalised treatment strategies that optimise therapeutic outcomes.
Digital PET-CT produces sharper, superior images, crucial for accurately diagnosing and staging diseases. It has higher resolution to detect even very small tumors as small as 3 mn whereas the analogue PET CT could detect tumors sized 8-to mn. It requires less time for scanning, it can scan the patient within 7-8 min which traditionally required15-20 min. This scanner accommodates individuals of all body sizes, ensuring accurate results regardless of their physicality and it is highly sensitive system that require less radioactive material to be injected into the patient exposing patients to a lower dose of radiation during the scan.
