The uEXPLORER is an ultra-high-resolution digital PET/CT with a 194 cm axial PET field of view (FOV) that enables the whole body to be scanned in one bed position. The system offers total body dynamic scanning, enables ultra-low patient dose and produces ultra-high image resolution, changing the way whole-body PET/CT imaging has traditionally been performed.
The core of the uEXPLORER PET system is the integrated light guide digital detectors that consist of silicon photomultipliers (SiPMs) and fine 2.76 mm lutetium-yttrium oxyorthosilicate(LYSO) crystals, with over 564,480 crystal elements. This provides exceptional image quality, with 2.9 mm NEMA resolution to improve quantitative accuracy and small lesion detectability.
The uEXPLORER employs a 160-slice CT that is equipped with the Z-Detector to allow for low dose data acquisition with ultra-low electronic noise. The fast rotation speed enables advanced applications such as cardiac imaging, while the 0.5 mm individual element size allows visualization of very fine structures with every scan. The uEXPLORER provides true clinical versatility without having to choose between fast scans or low dose.
The 194 cm axial PET FOV enables the whole human body to be scanned in one bed position, and powerful computing hardware gives the ability to complete total body reconstruction within eight minutes. The uEXPLORER also touts an extremely high sensitivity of 191 cps/kBq*, allowing for clinical flexibility with the potential to scan at sub-millicurie tracer dose or in as little time as 30 seconds at standard dose. Together, these core components enable maximum system efficiency, a more effective workflow and an increase in patient throughput.
The uEXPLORER comes standard with advanced technologies such as time-of-flight, point spread function, and metal artifact correction, expanding clinical prospects for every practice and adhering to the United Imaging’s belief in “Healthcare for All.”
