Q.CLEAR – Up to 2x improvement in Image Quality (SNR)

Reduced noise in the liver,
help improve diagnostic confidence

Clinical Case

Patient History :

Patient with previously known endocrine tumor was submitted to PET/CT for restaging after radiopeptide treatment.

Acquisition:

Equipment: Discovery* 690

PET acquisition


Reconstruction Standard Q.Clear
Injected dose : 111.6 MBq of 68Ga 111.6 MBq of 68Ga
BMI 21.3 21.3

Results:

18F-FDG 3D MIP PET View

Conclusion:

Q.Clear reduced overall background noise, increasing the signal to noise ratio helping the detectability of small lesions, especially in the liver which is particularly heterogeneous.
Small lesions delineation in the bones were highly improved with Q.Clear
