Unlocks the true potential of theranostic treatments
Providing more quantitative data for every PET scanner and every PET scan
Currently in development, the ArterialPET is a compact, non-invasive Positron Emission Tomograph (PET) scanner that circles the wrist or ankle. It determines the arterial input function essential for quantitative PET imaging, allowing all PET to provide additional information on the state of a disease or effectiveness of therapy. It is a non-invasive alternative to the arterial catheter and a substantial improvement on the mere estimates that Standard Uptake Value (SUV) provides.
ArterialPET: In Focus
When used in assessing treatments like chemotherapy or theranostic treatments, ArterialPET provides information on the bioavailability of the radiopharmaceutical at the time of the PET scan. ArterialPET’s reading is relatively instantaneous, and combined with physiological modeling, allows the quantitative assessment of disease or neurological function. The current dominant clinical model for measuring radiopharmaceutical uptake is the SUV which does not provide quantitative information. ArterialPET is a non-invasive detector that works in tandem with any conventional PET imaging device.
*This is in beta testing. It is for investigational purposes only.
In the future, ArterialPET may provide improved diagnoses in clinical treatment. The Arterial Scanner has the potential to save thousands of lives by accelerating cancer treatments. It is currently being used for investigative purposes in therapeutic validation. The results for the input function should compare favorably to the SUV model and could eliminate the need for an arterial catheter in PET studies.
Other benefits and applications may include:
- Accelerate the process of drug discovery that utilizes PET imaging
- Accelerate the development of new PET radiopharmaceuticals
