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.
