Nuclear medicine a developing field in India


Mr K N Sudhir, business head – Molecular Imaging, Siemens Healthcare, India,

With the evolving techology molecualr imaging to provide speedy, reliable and accurate results and will also help reduce cost associated with ineffective therapies. Keeping all these aspects in mind Mr KN Sudhir, business head - Molecular Imaging, Siemens Healthcare, India, puts some light on the molecular technological advances.

1. Tell us about Siemens' Biograph mCT Flow & Symbia Intevo?

Mr Sudhir: The Biograph mCT Flow PET•CT system with FlowMotion Siemens found a way to overcome the limitations of conventional PET/CT. So far, PET exams were done in sequential segments, called bed positions. With Biograph mCT Flow's FlowMotion technology, the patient bed moves continuously inside the gantry and allows anatomy-based planning.

That means each exam is planned based on that specific patient's anatomy, so physicians can plan their exams to get more information where it is really important for that patient.

The Symbia Intevo xSPECT system now, the world's first xSPECT system, with this physicians have the potential to not only image disease, but also leverage the high resolution to see the unseen and more confidently interpret images.
