Product Overview

As a healthcare provider, you are focused on finding the most effective treatment, based on each patient’s response. GE Healthcare is providing you the tools to help make this goal a reality with the Discovery* PET/CT 710 and Q.Suite. The entirely new PET/CT scanner and breakthrough tools for quantitative PET assist you in making appropriate treatment decision for individual patients.

Benefits

Breakthrough tools for quantitative PET

With so much potential for variation, each part of the workflow must be addressed for quantitative PET to be effective. With Q.Suite, new capabilities from GE Healthcare work together to drive quantitative consistency.

Q.Suite can help physcians assess therapy response early and effectively, allowing oncologists to modify treatment strategies without waiting for physical results.  Effective therapy may help improve the patient’s quality of life and overall outcome as well as reduce the cost burden of ineffective treatment.

Daily quality control

  • Count-Rate independent performance: Great performance at any count rate.
  • Real-Time Temperature Compensation: Consistent performance. Every exam. Every temperature.

Workflow

  • Q.Core: Accelearting your quantitative imaging workflow.
  • Q.Check: A quality control link between the scanner and the workstation.

Motion correction

  • Q.Static: Reducing open motion effects quickly and simply.

Reconstruction algorithm

  • Q.AC: Attenuation consistency for demanding protocols such as Cine CTAC.

Analysis and reporting applications

  • PET VCAR: Powerful patient evaluation and monitoring. PET VCAR can do evaluations based on PERCIST and RECIST and incorporates Q.Check.

Technology

The Discovery PET/CT 710 offers tried and true technologies:

  • Innovations with a 40-mm detector at 0.35-sec rotation speed.
  • Up to 60% lower CO2 emissions using the energy saving mode.
  • Advanced applications to help clinicians make a fast and confident diagnosis.
  • ASiR1 technology may allow for reduced mA in the acquisition of diagnostic images.
  • Simplified workflow for quick and streamlined operation.
  • Scalable, modular design for ease of service.
  • 128-slice axial overlapped reconstruction for improved Z-axis visualization compared to non-overlapped reconstruction.    

Q.Suite is the product of close, ongoing partnerships between technology leaders and clinical researchers.  We learned about the challenges of quantitative PET from our customers and developed Q.Suite with their help.  Q.Suite is built on a platform that can support ongoing development in the future.  It will constitute an important step forward in capturing consistent quantitative measurements.

1. In clinical practice, the use of ASiR may reduce CT patient dose depending on the clinical task, patient size, anatomical location, and clinical practice. A consultation with a radiologist and a physicist should be made to determine the appropriate dose to obtain diagnostic image quality for the particular clinical task.
