Precision-driven performance

Redefine PET/CT imaging with the precision-driven performance of Biograph Vision™1 from Siemens Healthineers. With industry-leading technical specifications, Biograph Vision delivers next-level image quality that transforms accurate decision-making.2,3 


Redefined technical precision

Biograph Vision’s groundbreaking technological performance redefines the limits of imaging. Featuring 3.2-mm lutetium oxyorthosilicate (LSO) crystals that are 100% covered by SiPMs2, Biograph Vision’s Optiso Ultra Dynamic Range (UDR) detector technology delivers high 48-mm3 volumetric resolution2 and 214-ps "true" time-of-flight performance.3 Biograph Vision leverages the full potential of SiPM technology to reveal the bigger picture for accurate and confident decision-making. 


Unlocking imaging versatility

Unlock more clinical and research capabilities with Biograph Vision’s state-of-the-art detectability. Biograph Vision provides high image resolution and sensitivity for precise quantification that can positively impact health outcomes. UDR provides outstanding performance for a wide spectrum of count rates, enabling a broad variety of radiotracers at optimal doses. 


Empowered operational performance

Biograph Vision empowers users to reduce scan time and injected dose to boost productivity, avoid unnecessary exposure, and increase patient comfort with the market’s highest effective sensitivity3 at 100 cps/kBq. Enhance patient and user experience with intelligent imaging capabilities that drive greater throughput while providing more consistent and accurate results. No matter the user, the patient,5 or the procedure, Biograph Vision delivers exceptional outcomes.
