The Positron PET scanner is being upgraded to allow whole-body imaging for diagnostic procedures in oncology, neurology, and cardiology.

Positron has been known primarily for its Posicam cardiac PET scanner, which is being used by Mobile P.E.T. Systems on its specially designed trailer.

The new scanner, the mPower, has a 16.6-cm field of view, according to the company, plus enhanced software that allows shorter patient scan times. The mPower will be displayed June 3–7 at the Society of Nuclear Medicine meeting in St. Louis.
