Philips Vereos PET/CT


The Vereos PET/CT is the world’s first and only fully digital PET/CT. Providing improved detectability and characterization of small lesions1, uncompromised lesion detectability and quantification at half the PET dose2, and uncompromised lesion detectability in one-tenth of the time3, Vereos enables clinicians to go beyond current limitations in PET/CT imaging to enhance patient care. These advances in clinical performance are the result of the synergy between breakthrough innovations; Philips’ proprietary Digital Photon Counting (DPC) technology and faster Time-of-Flight performance, resulting in approximately 2x the volumetric resolution, sensitivity gain, and quantitative accuracy compared to analog4 systems.
