Overview

Rarely Does Sensitivity Show Such Power

The Discovery* PET/CT 600 brings advanced imaging tools and applications to your clinical routine.

Having high sensitivity enables you to detect and monitor small tumors. You can obtain better image quality with low dose and less time per bed position – all with full scan range. You can diagnose disease accurately and stage it effectively. You can develop precise treatment plans and monitor therapy response maintaining clinical confidence at every step.

You can reduce the effects of physiological movement with GE’s advanced motion-management technology, now taken even further. With IBM BladeCenter®1 cell technology, Discovery PET /CT 600 can reconstruct PET images up to four times faster than previous generation systems. You will streamline workflow and throughput with one of the industry’s fastest exams.

This system is well-suited for the needs of oncology, including radiation treatment planning and monitoring.
