The Simultaneous PET MRI
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a long-established and ever-improving technique for imaging structures in the body. Positron emission tomography (PET) is used to show Metabolic processes in the body. Formerly, the two techniques were used sequentially if MRI alone was not sufficient for a diagnosis. But now, for the first time, both MRI and PET are united in a single scanner – the molecular magnetic resonance (mMR) system. Biograph mMR is an innovative hybrid imaging system: a magnetic resonance imaging scanner combined with a PET imaging system that captures metabolic and functional processes at the same time. This new hybrid imaging technique makes a single reference image by combining both techniques. This is a tremendous advancement in diagnostic accuracy and precision.
This World’s Only Machine able to produce Simultaneous Imaging, captures anatomical, functional and biochemical parameters in one test and enables viewing every possible detail like location, size, extent, type, sub-type, and behavior of cancer thus establishing the complete diagnosis and thereby carry out accurate treatment planning. Patients are benefited by not getting subjected to a series of testing and be benefited by the accuracy of diagnosis and effective treatment plan. The outcome of testing thus improves achieving QUALY (Quality Associated Life Years) for even the most dreaded cancer patients. As a matter of fact, the machine is a zero radiation-emitting type and thus very safe in conducting tests in pediatric age groups and in those who are more radiation hazard-prone requiring repeat scans, With the advent of newer molecules, this marvel of innovation is going to be the modality of choice combing best of the Nuclear and Radiological Imaging techniques for helping advance the human health.
