House of Diagnostics (HOD), a renowned name in the field of diagnostics and pathology, has introduced GE’s state-of-the-art PET-CT scanner, called Discovery IQ Gen 2, at its East Delhi facility in Karkardooma. The new PET-CT machine will come as an addition to HOD's existing suite of imaging equipment, providing advanced imaging capabilities for precise diagnosis and effective treatment planning.
The latest scanner is one of the most widely utilized and trusted PET-CT systems among clinicians all across the globe. It represents a significant advancement in medical imaging technology. The PET-CT scanner combines the images from a positron emission tomography (PET) scan and a computed tomography (CT) scan to provide detailed and comprehensive information about a patient's health condition. The combination of functional and anatomical data aids in creating a comprehensive picture of a patient’s health, allowing the doctor to make a well-informed decision.
The Discovery IQ Gen 2 PET-CT scanner offers a wide range of benefits. One of the key advantages of this imaging modality is its exceptional image quality. The high image resolution allows for accurate detection and localization of diseases, such as cancer, neurological disorders, and cardiac conditions. For excellent PET-CT imaging, the machine makes use of MotionFree technology (a digital respiratory motion management solution) which allows for reduced motion during the examination for exceptionally clear images. In addition, the scanner uses more accurate and consistent quantitative tools like Q.Clear to help support the treatment with precise data points.
An improved design and cutting-edge technology loads this scanner with high sensitivity and specificity, leading to the identification of even the smallest abnormalities within the body. Among other prominent features of this machine is Smart MAR, which helps reduce metal artifacts, thus providing a significant reduction of streaks and shadows to save time from correcting images.
With the highest NEMA sensitivity in the industry, this next generation machine is thoughtfully engineered to provide faster scans using low-dose. Moreover, its remote landmarking feature enables technicians to remotely adjust the positioning of the table from inside the console room, which helps save time in preparing for exams and reducing their exposure to radiation. The machine also provides the ability to scan patients of all sizes.
The introduction of the Discovery IQ Gen 2 PET-CT scanner at HOD's Karkardooma centre reinforces the company’s commitment to provide the best CARE to patients. By using cutting-edge technology, HOD aims to enhance diagnostic accuracy, improve patient outcomes, and ultimately save lives.
The new PET-CT scanner is in alignment with HOD’s mission to provide innovative technology and value-priced services to benefit patients and the medical community as a whole. The addition of this machine reaffirms its position as a pioneer in the field of diagnostics and pathology. HOD's dedication to offering comprehensive and precise diagnostics is further complimented by its team of highly skilled and experienced radiologists, technologists, and support staff. The team ensures that patients receive the highest quality of care throughout their diagnostic journey.
