Molecular imaging is more than a tool for seeing within the human body. It allows the search for something greater, the search for a deeply hidden truth known as a true discovery. It’s the kind of discovery that is reproducible evidence of what is seen and often not seen.

The search for true discovery is ongoing. It starts with each new patient that walks through your doors. And you do everything you can to ensure you have the right knowledge and the right tools to make the discovery that will change the life of each patient for the better. We partnered with healthcare professionals like you to understand what you need from your instruments to meet today’s most challenging cases and what you need to grow your services while planning for future challenges. 

It’s why we created Discovery™ MI DR. A premium PET/CT system with the added flexibility of a standalone diagnostic CT. It delivers the accurate, reproducible results referring physicians require and the added clinical versatility you need to expand your practice beyond FDG and oncology.

Our vision for the future of molecular imaging is all-digital, from the technology you use, to data collection, to processing software, all the way through to the applications you use to interpret and communicate information. Together, these fully digital components will give you the best possible insights to guide not just your clinical outcomes, but your financial and operational outcomes as well. 

With Discovery MI DR, get ready to leverage deep learnings from digital software and analytics innovations. Get ready for potential future needs with a system that easily adapts to our digital PET detector. And most importantly, get ready for meaningful insights.

When assessing different imaging technologies, today’s healthcare professionals need to be clinically minded, but with an eye to the future to ensure they are in the best position to meet new challenges. To help you, we designed a PET/CT system with leading edge technology that stays at the leading edge, even as your needs change. 

The LightBurst LBS Detector is designed for speed and efficiency. This uniquely configured detector has an unmatched 25 mm Lutetium-based scintillator (LBS) that delivers the high sensitivity needed to capture the greatest number of counts. As part of our strategy to provide you with a system that stays at the leading edge, we designed it so that it can easily be updated to the LightBurst Digital Detector if in the future your practice should require it. 

Discovery MI DR brings together the most innovative reconstruction technology available, the combination of Time-of-Flight and Q.Clear. The result is outstanding resolution to improve the detection of small lesions as well as repeatable accuracy for every SUV measurement from one exam to the next.

In addition to advancements in reconstruction and quantitation technology, Discovery MI DR includes diagnostic CT innovations from our Revolution™ EVO. It combines the Clarity Imaging System with the speed of the Performix™ 40 Plus tube with our proprietary HiLight CT detector to deliver up to a 2x increase in spatial resolution when used with ASiR-V™,1. Our innovative ASiR-V iterative reconstruction method is an option that can also reduce CT dose by up to 82 percent at the same image quality in routine imaging across applications1,2. And with Smart MAR virtually eliminating streaks and shadows from metal artifacts, you’ll save valuable time previously spent correcting images. This CT technology is the ideal fit for a clinically versatile system like Discovery MI DR.

To pursue leading-edge work in an advancing world, you need to be able to bring meaningful insights to every clinical challenge. You need a PET/CT system that puts no limitations on which patients you can image, so you can confidently recommend treatment options and help manage complex diseases. 

Discovery MI DR is a limitlessly versatile PET/CT system. It effectively and efficiently images the patients you see every day with faster scan times, low dose and accurate quantitation. But it also opens the door to imaging your most clinically challenging cases. 
Smart MAR metal artifact reduction makes it possible to clearly scan patients with metal implants. And its uniquely configured PET detector gives you the high sensitivity needed to explore high-count-rate protocols for imaging alternative tracers.

It’s the ideal PET/CT system to grow your services with. In addition to providing comprehensive PET oncology analysis to monitor cancer treatments, Discovery MI DR can be used to address clinical challenges beyond oncology to include cardiac and brain imaging. For example, with the introduction of beta amyloid specific tracers, PET brain imaging is becoming an invaluable tool in understanding complex neurodegenerative diseases. 

From imaging around metal artifacts to multi-isotope scans and applications beyond oncology, Discovery MI DR is a PET/CT system that’s ready for every clinical challenge.

1In clinical practice, the use of ASiR-V may reduce CT patient dose depending on the clinical task, patient size, anatomical location, and clinical practice. A consultation with a radiologist and a physicist should be made to determine the appropriate dose to obtain diagnostic image quality for the particular clinical task. Low Contrast Detectability (LCD), Image Noise, Spatial Resolution and Artifact were assessed using reference factory protocols comparing ASiR-V and FBP. The LCD measured in 0.625 mm slices and tested for both head and body modes using the MITA CT IQ Phantom (CCT183, The Phantom Laboratory), using model observer method.
