The Total-body PET/CT uEXPLORER


The Total-body PET/CT uEXPLORER is a revolutionary molecular imaging product that extends the axial FOV from about 20-30 centimeters to nearly 2 meters, and accomplishes total-body imaging in a single bed position in as little as 20 to 30 seconds. It also allows for fast and continuous tracking of tracer distribution in blood vessels, organs, and tissues throughout the body. With these cutting-edge capabilities, the uEXPLORER opens new research opportunities that have not been possible with traditional PET/CT technology. The uEXPLORER has been deployed at the newly established EXPLORER Molecular Imaging Center at University of California, Davis, in the U.S. and Zhongshan Hospital of Fudan University in Shanghai, China.



uMR Omega


The newly launched uMR Omega is the world’s first ultra-wide 75-cm bore 3.0T MR, the widest bore in the market, which leads the industry on improving the MR experience. The increased bore size, imaging FOV, and table capacity help better serve broad-shouldered, bariatric, and pregnant patients. As the additional space give patients a first-class experience, the calming light environment also helps reduce anxiety for patients in the enclosed space during a medical exam. In addition, the widest bore size will provide superior positioning convenience for off-center scans such as shoulder, hip, knee, and breast examinations, fully meeting all kinds of clinical needs.
