Siemens enhances preclinical PET software

Siemens Healthcare will launch tomorrow at the SNM meeting in Toronto newly enhanced software for viewing data acquired on its Inveon preclinical PET scanner. The upgraded Inveon Research Workplace (IRW) offers an expanded tool set for image visualization and data analysis, as well as new tools for cardiac PET applications. IRW version 3.0 enables visualization and analysis of dual-gated dynamic PET data free from cardiac and respiratory motion artifacts, according to the company. The new software also allows for quick and accurate high-resolution image data export, representation, and interpretation, while delivering such features as arbitrary image reorientation and image filtering.
