Royal Philips Electronics and the VU University Medical Center Amsterdam have signed an agreement to install one of Philips’ Ingenuity Time-of-Flight (TF) PET/MR scanners at the center.

The addition of the advanced imaging modality will help researchers at the VU University Medical Center Amsterdam to investigate new methods of diagnosing and treating cancer and neurological disorders.

VU University Medical Center Amsterdam, which has focused on the development and clinical application of PET technology, will be the first hospital in the Netherlands to have a PET/MR system.

The Ingenuity TF PET/MR scanner combines the molecular imaging capabilities of PET with the soft tissue imaging capabilities of MR imaging.
