MolecularImagingRAD·BOOK 2012 123 Highlights The Naviscan PEM scanner is the only high resolution PET scanner specificially optimized to provide metabolic visualization of abnormal breast tissue. The scanner works as an adjunct to conventional imaging procedures to detect, stage and manage breast cancer more accurately than ever before. Through a unique combination of gentle immobilization, advanced photonics and image processing, Positron Emission Mammography (PEM) allows to enhance early detection by identifying lesions smaller than 1.6 mm.
