Technical Specifications of Valley’s PET scanner


Valley’s PET/CT scanning unit is a GE DISCOVERY PET/CT Scanner manufactured by General Electric. The GE DISCOVERY is the first clinical PET scanner to use sophisticated  Bismuth Germanate (BGO) crystal technology, which offers the highest performance and image quality available in PET/CT scanning today. In addition, the GE DISCOVERY reduces whole-body PET scanning time by 50 percent -- from 40 to 20 minutes.

Positron emission tomography (PET) and computerized tomography (CT) are both state-of-the-art imaging tools. The highly sensitive PET scan images the biology of disorders at the molecular level, while the CT scan provides a detailed picture of the body's internal anatomy. The PET/CT scan combines the strengths of these two well-established imaging modalities into a single scan.
