Time-of-Flight PET Imaging Technology


PET Imaging Technology

Philips Time-of-Flight (TOF) technology improves contrast by up to 30% compared to non-TOF systems. It also improves signal-to-noise ratio, resulting in exceptional image quality, fast scans, and enhanced lesion detectability.

Superb image quality || Drives clinical performance

Superb image quality enhances lesion detectability

Time-of-Flight enhances image quality by reducing noise and providing increased sensitivity. Enhanced image quality helps facilitate lesion detection and localization to provide increased diagnostic confidence and help preserve healthy tissue during treatment.
Fast workflow || Ensures economic value

Fast workflow helps increase throughput

Philips Time-of-Flight technology allows clinicians to see fully reconstructed list mode images within minutes of acquisition, and the reconstruction design improves image quality without sacrificing speed. In fact, Philips current generation TOF is up to four times faster than the Philips previous-generation systems, with speeds as fast as 30 seconds/bed.
Fast scans || Enhances patient experience

Fast scans increase patient comfort

Because Time-of-Flight enhances the speed and productivity of a scan, patient throughput and comfort may be enhanced. In fact, for many patients, routine whole-body scans can be completed in less than 5 minutes of acquisition.
495 ps timing resolution || Drives clinical performance

495 ps timing resolution helps reduce noise

Fast timing resolution allows for improved localization of events and increased image quality.
Multi-purpose software || Ensures economic value

Multi-purpose software increase your system's flexibility

Time-of-Flight allows clinicians to use their PET/CT system for multiple purposes, including routine oncology, routine diagnostic CT, and incorporating PET into radiation therapy planning. Clinicians can perform a wide variety of studies and evaluate a variety of radioisotopes.
Low dose || Enhances patient experience

Low dose enhances patient care

With up to 5 times higher sensitivity than non-TOF scanners, you may be able to reduce radiopharmaceutical dosing in some or all of your studies.
