Benefits

Clinical and research flexibility

Whether you are performing cutting edge research with new radiotracers or simply want the ability to do so, the Discovery PET/CT 690 provides advanced scientific capabilities, next generation image reconstruction, and outstanding image quality for every exam.

Outstanding image quality & lesion detectability

The Discovery PET/CT 690 harmonizes GE’s total system design philosophy to bring you the best image quality and lesion detectability possible. Now with a faster crystal, quicker front end electronics and VUE Point FX intelligent reconstruction, the story is even more clear.

Addressing the biggest clinical challenge in PET/CT… Motion

Motion Match is the next evolution of motion management that may help improve early diagnosis, staging, treatment planning and monitoring by addressing the clinical challenges in areas subject to motion, like the heart and lungs.

Technology

Lutetium based scintillator

GE’s rich history with lutetium based scintillator’s began in 2005 with our custom research scanners. The Discovery PET/CT 690 builds on this experience to bring you advanced research capabilities that increase count rates and boost target to background noise ratio’s. The result: Lower doses, fast scans and more flexibility when using research tracers.

VUE Point FX

Next generation time-of-flight is made possible by adding timing resolution to our VUE Point HD intelligent reconstruction technology.

VUE Point HD

VUE Point HD intelligent reconstruction technology provides outstanding image quality for most patient types. Experience small lesion detectability, a wide field of view, and an optimized signal to noise ratio.

IBM BladeCenter®

See the power of two to four times faster reconstruction with the IBM BladeCenter® found in the Discovery PET/CT 690. Advanced processing techniques make time-of flight clinically relevant with reconstruction in minutes instead of hours and provide the ability to reconstruct 3D imaging and gated studies at incredible speeds.

4D Gating and Motion Match

Motion Match is the next evolution of motion management that may help improve early diagnosis, staging, treatment planning and monitoring by addressing the clinical challenges in areas subject to motion. In partnership with Varian Medical Systems, the system offers a integrated respiratory patient monitor (RPM) enabling gated studies.

PET VCAR - Volume Computer Assisted Reading

A powerful application that is used to provide objective evidence on tumor response over multiple studies and time enabling simplified quantification and reporting for your next research project. It automatically highlights and bookmarks PET defined regions of interest based on user-defined threshold settings, and improves efficiency by tracking results you care about most like SUV, lesion volume and Total Lesion Glycolysis (TLG).
