Philips nabs Finnish PET/MR install
Philips Healthcare has installed its Ingenuity TF whole-body PET/MR imaging system at Turku University Hospital in Turku, Finland.

The installation was completed in November 2011.

The Ingenuity TF PET/MR scanner combines the molecular imaging capabilities of PET with the soft tissue imaging capabilities of MRI. Philips said its systems combines these two modalities in a whole-body scanner and allows sequential PET and MR images to be acquired in the same session. This allows overlaying of the PET and MR images so that clinicians can combine the functional and anatomical information provided by PET and MR respectively into a single-fused image.
