It is the fastest, most sophisticated and powerful scanning device on the market. Mechanical fusion of a PET scanner and a CT scanner allows gathering of precise, high-resolution images to view detailed anatomy along with the biological processes/metabolism of tissue and cells in a single, noninvasive procedure. Far superior in speed, sensitivity and specificity, the Biograph LSO at Eisenhower Imaging Center is the only PET/CT scanner in the entire Inland Empire.
