In 90% of the PET/CT oncology cases, disease is located in the chest or abdomen2. These areas are subject to respiratory motion, which can displace organs and lesions by a range of 5 mm to 30 mm, blurring images and reducing diagnostic confidence3.
OncoFreeze delivers images virtually free of respiratory motion without extending your scan time. It helps to improve detection, delineation and quantification of lesions and increase your clinical confidence by adapting to each individual’s unique breathing pattern to deliver the best possible image.
Key benefits of OncoFreeze
- Provides images virtually free of respiratory motion in the same time as a regular whole-body scan
- Helps improve delineation and quantification of small lesions, increasing physician confidence
- Adapts to each individual’s unique breathing pattern to deliver the best possible image
Biograph Vision, FlowMotion Multiparametric PET Suite, OncoFreeze, and CardioFreeze are not commercially available in all countries. Due to regulatory reasons, their future availability cannot be guaranteed. Please contact your local Siemens organization for further details.
