Upgrades


Mediso offers flexible solutions for upgrading existing systems – basic systems can be seamlessly upgraded on-site, either by installing a complete subsystem (CT, PET, SPECT, or even MRI) or by adding additional detectors or new functionality to the system via software and firmware .

For people who strive to be on the cutting edge, several possibilities are available for keeping pace with the latest developments to maximise performance and output. We offer continuous upgrade paths for the existing NanoSPECT/CT® and NanoPET™/CT users – the details of the unique opportunities are listed below.

Upgrade for small animal SPECT/CT systems

Hardware upgrades includes a new dual monitor acquisition workstation with user friendly, ergonomic interfaces and peripherals allowing remote control and acquisition. The precision of movements are improved and overall computation power has been increased. Real-time GPU CT reconstruction becomes available with optimised CT calibration and reconstruction algorithms for better image quality. Safety and stability of operation is improved and the package receives a 12 TB fault tolerant RAID5 archiving workstation.

A significant benefit of the Silver Upgrade Package is the possibility of future software upgrades that allows the system to receive the latest developments of acquisition, reconstruction and post-processing software.

Upgrade for small animal PET/CT systems

Hardware upgrades include a new high-end external workstations with liquid cooling that operate with significantly lower noise level and the package receives a 12 TB fault tolerant RAID5 archiving workstation as well. A total of 4 workstations will replace the existing ones including an additional workstation for independent post-reconstruction functions.

Software upgrade incorporates improved corrections in PET reconstruction by Tera-Tomo™ 3D PET reconstruction software that result in higher spatial resolution, better homogeneity over the FOV and better RC values, while bringing the resolution close to its physical limits. The upgrade also includes improved precision of movements, higher computation capacity and real-time GPU CT reconstruction with improved, optimized CT calibration and reconstruction algorithms for better image quality.

A significant benefit of the Silver Upgrade Package is the possibility of future software upgrades that allow the system to receive the latest developments of acquisition, reconstruction and post-processing software.
