Oncology dominates the utilization of PET scans. According to AMR US & Europe PET/CT procedure data for 2011, approximately 95% of all PET/CT scans are used in the area of diagnosis, staging & therapy assessment in oncology. In addition, 99% of scans performed use low-medium count rate isotopes such as F18 FDG. The new BGO systems such as the Discovery* 600/610 PET/CT combine high sensitivity and sharp resolution to deliver high image quality and lesion detection at low dose. In this video, physicians at Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) in Tulsa discuss their experience with the Discovery 600 PET/CT system. They discuss how the excellent staging capability and improved resolution has probably resulted in additional referrals and is making a clinical impact by enabling detection of early metastases. Discovery PET/CT with the new BGO … the clinical choice.
