Biograph mMR* is the first system that can simultaneously acquire MR and PET data across the whole body. Now you have the power to obtain a comprehensive diagnostic picture with one scan. This combined information of MR and PET fully supports you from detection and assessment of disease, through precise planning of intervention, to follow-up treatment.
To improve the precision of spatial registration, Biograph mMR collects MR and PET simultaneously from a single frame of reference. The result is MR and PET data acquired at the same point in time, thus reflecting the same point in physiologic processes such as respiration.
Biograph mMR technology delivers brilliant MR images through gating tools that freeze motion. This gating information can also be used to drastically reduce the motion effects in the PET data for a clearer image. This is essential when structures like the heart or other moving organs must be imaged.
The human body is in a constant state of change. By acquiring MR and PET data simultaneous, Biograph mMR captures metabolic and functional processes at the exact same time for a precise and accurate snapshot of disease.
Biograph mMR is designed to give you the ability to meet the needs of demanding high-end research. The new system provides technology to tackle the toughest challenges that the world of healthcare faces today. Even more, it empowers you to expand into new areas of clinical research and prepare for how disease is managed tomorrow.
MR and PET come together to support tumor staging. In this example, high-resolution MRI provides a clear image of the pathology within the pelvic structure while PET displays hypermetabolism in the lesion.
Minimizing radiation dose is especially critical for pediatric patients. Equipped with many low-dose features that keep injected dose to a minimum, the Biograph mMR can be an excellent tool in imaging young patients.
The benefits of MR and PET in the study of neurological diseases are well known. Bringing them together offers the potential for a more comprehensive imaging picture and better understanding of neurological pathologies.
*The Biograph mMR system is pending 510(k) review by the U.S. FDA and requires a Declaration of Conformity according to MDD. It is not commercially available in all countries.
