GE Healthcare Launches Omni Legend PET/CT System at EANM Congress


The inclusion of digital bismuth germanate (BGO) detector material with the Omni Legend system reportedly more than doubles the sensitivity of older PET/CT devices, improves scan times, and enhances the detection of small lesions.

Emphasizing enhanced diagnostic capabilities, improved efficiency and artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled features, GE Healthcare introduced the Omni Legend positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) platform at the 35th Annual Congress of the European Association of Nuclear Medicine (EANM) in Barcelona, Spain.

GE Healthcare said a key feature of the Omni Legend system is the enhanced sensitivity with the small crystal size of the digital bismuth germanate (BGO) detector. The PET/CT platform reportedly bolsters image quality with Precision DL, a deep neural network that facilitates improved qualitative accuracy and contrast-to-noise ratio.

“Sensitivity and image quality are everything in PET/CT. Omni Legend delivers on both — meeting all our image quality criteria for oncology and providing impressive sensitivity to image high-count tracers for cardiac and neuroimaging, which helps better inform patient diagnoses and monitoring,” noted John Kennedy, Ph.D., a chief physicist in the Nuclear Medicine Department at the Rambam Health Care Campus in northern Israel.

Dr. Kennedy said the Omni Legend PET/CT system enabled his facility to reduce dosing by 40 percent in comparison to previous PET/CT devices and perform up to 35 patient scans in a 9.5-hour shift.

The Omni Legend system also allows hands-free patient positioning with the AI-powered Auto Positioning feature, according to GE Healthcare.
