(Booth 1729) At this year's RSNA show, GE Healthcare of Chalfont St. Giles, U.K., will showcase high-definition PET image processing, patient motion management, and clinical productivity features on its Discovery Dimension PET/CT system. Combined, the features are designed to address motion, which adversely affects PET/CT image quality.

2007 10 22 14 15 14 706The newest version of Discovery Dimension helps clinicians advance toward the goal of motion-free PET/CT imaging by addressing imaging mismatches related to respiratory and cardiac motion. These include motion correction techniques that effectively improve clinical results and minimize blur caused by motion.

GE will also show Vue Point, a new application for PET image generation. Vue Point is designed for improving the detection of small lesions, and allows clinicians to perform advanced PET image generation for enhanced qualitative and quantitative accuracy, according to the company.

Vue Point incorporates advanced proprietary image reconstruction algorithms, including volume scatter correction and a patented image projection technique, and is applicable to both 2D and 3D PET acquisition modes and static and dynamic imaging.

Vue Point is available on Discovery Dimension by way of new installations or field upgrades for installed Discovery ST systems.

Finally, GE will highlight PET VCAR, a volume computer-aided reading application that received U.S. Food and Drug Administration 510(k) clearance earlier in 2007. The software includes workflow enhancements, such as exam-to-exam autoregistration, tumor segmentation and quantification, and multiplanar image review.
