Tips for buying PET/CT

  1. Before deciding on a specific system configuration when buying a PET scanner, buyers should consider the number and types of PET studies to be performed.
  2. All CT PET scanners should provide adequate image quality.
  3. Patient throughput varies among PET scanners. It is impossible to specify patient throughput, which depends on the types of exams being performed and the size of the patient.
  4. The sensitivity of a CT PET scanner is used as a guide to the patient throughput; the higher the sensitivity, the shorter the exam time is.
  5. Scatter fraction must also be considered. A higher scatter fraction indicates reduced image quality.
  6. High detector performance is crucial for facilities wishing to conduct PET scans using isotopes with very short half-lives.
  7. Facilities adding a Positron Emission Tomography (PET) facility should expect extensive planning and construction, special permits, and serious training for technical staff.
