UPMC Radiology in partnership with the Hillman cancer center will be the first academic institution in the country to install the novel revolutionary design Siemens Vision Quadra® PET-CT scanner at its Pittsburgh Shadyside campus. This unconventional scanner is touted to offer a unique whole-body perspective and ultra-fast molecular imaging. The name Quadra® stems from its intrinsic capability equivalent to 4 traditional PET-CT scanners. This 106cm axial PET field-of-view will enable clinicians and researchers scan patients in one position and to dynamically follow tracer kinetics throughout the body. Also, this state-of-the-art design boasts best-in-class time-of-flight performance with unrivaled PET sensitivity. From tumor perfusion over time, to diverse pathophysiologic processes, Quadra® promises to expand a world of new opportunities, never been possible before in academic research and cancer imaging.
