United Imaging Introduces New PET/CT and Molecular Technology Platform at SNMMI

A new PET/CT and molecular technology platform were introduced by United Imaging at the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) 2023 annual meeting. The uMI Panorama is a family of products that also includes a 510k pending system with a 148 cm axial FOV, the uMI Panorama GS. Built on the uExcel platform, this ultra-long axial FOV system allows for fast and high-resolution whole-body PET/CT imaging in a single bed position.

United Imaging is also showcasing a Molecular Imaging technology platform along with the uMI Panorama, called uExcel. The platform integrates hardware and software innovations to optimize performance, imaging capabilities and system functionalities. Its ultra-digital platform

(UDP) detector boasts a high-performance ASIC chip, and its AI-empowered workflow streamlines operations and enhances examination efficiency. Exceptional image quality can be achieved with a lower dose, and the quality assurance module maintains peak performance of the system.

Cheri Gottke, Vice President of the Molecular Imaging portfolio for the US, added that the uMI Panorama is currently installed at Huntsman Cancer Center in Salt Lake City, Utah and that "we chose SNMMI as the official stage to debut it."

Jeffrey Bundy, PhD, CEO of United Imaging Healthcare Solutions, says, "There has been a debate in the marketplace for a while about the relative importance of resolution, axial field of view (FOV), and time of flight (TOF). With the new wide-bore uMI Panorama and its 2.9 mm NEMA resolution, 35 cm axial FOV and 194 ps timing resolution, we will gladly have a conversation on any single specification or the collective benefit of all of them, because with this particular product, the need to compromise is gone."

The entire uMI portfolio is also "Born with AI" from the ground up, rather than being retrofitted with it later. This allows a seamless integration of artificial intelligence (AI) across all products, which optimizes daily workflow, improves the patient experience, and creates stunning diagnostic images.

United Imaging's artificial intelligence (uAI) streamlines routine clinical workflows by auto iso-centering patients and defining the scan range. Its systems also allow faster scanning with less dose, while improving PET and CT imaging quality and providing image consistency in all clinical settings, from academic to freestanding imaging centers.
