Product Computed Tomography X-Ray Systems, (Brilliance 6, Brilliance 16, MX8000 Dual v. Exp, GEMINI Dual), Philips Healthcare Systems, Cleveland, OH. The Brilliance 6, 16 and MX8000 Dual v. Exp are Computed Tomography X-Ray Systems that are intended to produce cross-sectional images of the body by computer reconstruction of x-ray transmission data taken at different angles and planes. These devices may include signal analysis and display equipment, patient, and equipment supports, components and accessories. GEMINI Dual is an imaging system that combines positron emission tomography (PET) and X-ray computed tomography. The GEMINI produces attenuation and non-attenuation corrected images of the distribution of PET radiopharmaceuticals in the head, body and total body as well as X-ray transmission images of these areas. The PET and CT images are registered and displayed in a fused format to provide combined PET and anatomical data at different angles for interpretation by trained health professionals. The PET and CT portions of the system can be used either as an integrated system or as a stand-alone PET or CT system. GEMINI can provide CT data suitable for use in attenuation correction.
