GE Healthcare has invested in the development of a system utilizing sequential imaging with integrated registration (PET+MR) that will consist of two scanning devices with a shared transport system and the image registration application running on the Advantage Workstation, allowing a patient to be moved from one device (PET/CT) to the other device (MR) without changing positions on the table.

Sequential integrated registration enables applications requiring accurate registration of PET/CT and MRI, and at the same time allows the use of assets for routine standalone clinical exams, said Vivek Bhatt, general manager of PET/CT at GE.

GE is showcasing various technologies and services from preclinical to radiopharmaceutical and clinical solutions at the European Society of Nuclear Medicine (ESNM) in Vienna, Oct. 10 to 12.
