Triumph II HRCT Subsystem
High Resolution MicroCT
The High Resolution CT for the Triumph II PET/SPECT/CT provides spatial resolution down to 35 micron (14 lp/mm), a two-fold improvement from the resolution of the standard XO-CT on the Triumph II. The HRCT also provides enhanced functionality to the Triumph system including variable focal spot (25-130μm), prospective respiratory gating, frame averaging, automatic fusion and protocol flexibility (high resolution, low power quantitative scanning to high power, high throughput screening).
These advanced features expand the Triumph's already vast application range into specimen scanning, detailed bone studies, lung morphology and (potentially) tumor angiography. The HRCT is available for new system configurations and is also upgradeable in the field for existing Triumph platforms.
Features and Benefits
Feature: Prospective Respiratory Gating
Benefit: Timed acquisitions coincident with animal breathing to minimize image distortion
Applications: Cardiology, Pulmonary, Lung Disease and Cancer Studies
Feature: <35 m spatial resolution
Benefit: 2-3 times better resolution than typical in vivo microCT with comparable dose.
Applications: Arthritis, Osteoporosis, bone physiology and stereology studies.
Feature: Variable Focal Spot (25-130 m), zooming, frame stacking and fusion
Benefit: Adjustable FOV, exposure dose and
contrast resolution based on study needs.
Applications: Combinatorial studies of whole body and partial morphology/physiology with single animal.
