Siemens Installs First Mobile Biograph TruePoint PET/CT Scanner

Siemens Healthcare, Molecular Imaging Division recently delivered the first 2 newly redesigned mobile Biograph 6 TruePoint positron emission tomography and computed tomography (PET/CT) systems to the Florida Radiation Oncology Group (FROG) a division of Integrated Community Oncology Network in Jacksonville.

“PET/CT imaging has become critical in radiation oncology patient management,” said Shyam Paryani, MD, MS, MHA, director of FROG. “Patients will benefit from having these mobile scanners in their communities. They need multiple PET/CT scans throughout the course of treatment and bringing the imaging to them will spare them a multiple-hour drive when they already are in poor health.”
