Biograph Horizon Flow edition
Moving the standard to personalized care.
Moving the standard to personalized care
FlowMotion™ technology combines our standard-setting PET/CT with a unique system design that enables continuous motion of the patient table—allowing increased image quality, greater patient comfort, better performance and expanded versatility.1
Reach more patients
Use all commercially available PET tracers to address a broader range of oncology, neurology and cardiac indications. With premium LSO-based detectors and Time-of-Flight technology, you can go beyond the capabilities of BGO-based2 PET/CT scanners for high count-rate applications.
Catch smaller lesions, earlier
BiographTM Horizon Flow3 edition's high image quality supports early identification of distant metastasis, leading to a more accurate disease staging. These factors can help physicians determine an effective treatment strategy, reducing costs and patient side effects related to ineffective therapies.
To help you visualize small lesions, Biograph Horizon Flow edition features a combination of technologies that enhance image quality and productivity.
syngo.via for Molecular Imaging
syngo.via® offers a suite of automated tools to instantly visualize diagnostic information, measure with confidence and report more comprehensively across a number of applications.
For example, with EQ•PET4 you can normalize SUV measurements across different scanners throughout your patients’ extended treatment plan for more precise calculation of changes in tumor uptake.
Do more with your time
Help your staff focus on what matters most: your patients. Biograph Horizon Flow edition offers protocol-based exams to support a more standardized workflow and is equipped with built-in capabilities that automate routine tasks.
A better workflow can lead to more satisfied patients
New efficiencies do more than free up staff time and reduce costs. They are seen and felt by the patients who have a simpler, faster, more positive experience at your facility. Biograph Horizon Flow edition streamlines your day-to-day work, giving you more time to focus on your patients.
syngo.via offers up to 45%5 faster processing
Start reading your cases right away. syngo.via automates pre-fetching, pre-processing, and display and comparison of previous findings. And syngo.via’s ALPHA technology features automatic registration with exclusive organ-based recognition capabilities.
Create more opportunity
Built to run as efficiently as possible, to reduce operating costs and to extend the economic life of your system, Biograph Horizon Flow edition supports your business. Offering the standard in PET/CT technology at an attractive total cost of ownership, your scanner has the flexibility to grow with you.
A smart investment with a small footprint
Never compromise quality in pursuit of lowering your costs. Biograph Horizon Flow edition offers investment protection that supports your clinical needs and helps create new efficiencies with each scan. As the smallest6 PET/CT system on the market, you can minimize your initial capital investment, while low operating and maintenance costs help keep your overhead expenses under control.
syngo.via Molecular Imaging Workplace
Configured specifically for Biograph Horizon Flow edition, syngo.via Molecular Imaging Workplace7 is a cost-effective image processing solution that can expand to meet your clinical needs.
Tailor each exam
Every patient is unique.
Every organ is different.
Every disease is specific.
So a one-size-fits-all exam protocol is not ideal for achieving the best imaging quality and can negatively influence treatment decisions. A tailored approach, however, is more complex and usually requires additional time. With FlowMotion™ technology you can standardize imaging protocols while ensuring personalized scans, providing a higher standard1 of imaging in a single, fast exam.
Moving the standard to personalized care
As a complement to our key technologies, FlowMotion can help improve patient outcomes and optimize your workflow. Most conventional step-and-shoot examinations are restricted by the inefficiencies of bed-based scanning, which limits the routine use of advanced imaging technologies. FlowMotion's continuous bed motion helps you standardize protocols while personalizing the scans in a single, fast exam. Ensure reproducibility from one exam to another, reduce CT dose, increase image quality and provide greater patient comfort.
Simply load the standardized, indication-based protocol, personalize to patient anatomy and start the scan.
