Product Description:

The Siemens Biograph TruePoint 40 PET/CT is a very high-powered, flexible medical imaging scanner.  This system allows you to select from various CT configurations, resolutions, and clinical configuration options.  It optimizes clinical throughput and increases sensitivity and resolution with LSO-based detectors.  Routine 10-minute PET exams, an increase count rate performance by 70%, and higher resolution are all provided by the Siemens Biograph TruePoint 40 PET/CT.


  • Higher resolution throughout the field of view with HD•PET
  • Biograph™ TruePoint™ completely integrates the functional sensitivity of PET with the rich anatomical detail of diagnostic multislice CT. Exclusive technologies, such as HD•PET, TrueV, HI-REZ, LSO, Pico-3D, TrueC and SureView, offer superb image quality for improved diagnostic confidence. With Biograph TruePoint you can be more confident in your ability to detect changes in metabolic activity before anatomical changes become visible.
  • Largest PET field of view in the industry, increasing count rate performance by >70%
  • It is time to think big. Biograph TruePoint with TrueV increases the PET field of view by an eye-opening 33 percent in the axial dimension. TrueV is proven to increase count rate performance by greater than 70 percent, giving you the flexibility to lower dose rates or scan times by 50 percent. It provides you with the most functional information possible per PET bed positions and reveals clear, breathtaking PET images.
  • Routine 10-minute PET exams
  • Biograph TruePoint is built on the most popular CT platform in the world, the SOMATOM® Emotion.* The advanced CT capabilities of Biograph TruePoint enable increased diagnostic confidence and system utilization.
