“We are thrilled to bring the Biograph Vision Mobile PET/CT to our community,” said Dr. Jerry Froelich, chair of Molecular Imaging at UMMC. “The Biograph Vision enables our facility to identify the smallest of lesions early because of the high resolution and image quality, which supports an accurate diagnosis and more personalized treatment options to our patients. By incorporating premium PET/CT into our practice, we can improve patient outcomes, reduce procedure costs, and help avoid ineffective therapies for our patients.”

The Biograph Vision Mobile Edition system is slated to be deployed by SMS at UMMC locations in early 2023.
