Nicklaus Children's Acquires Latest Child-Friendly PET/CT Technology

Published on: 11/11/2020

Nicklaus Children’s is the first pediatric facility in the Southeast to acquire a Siemens Healthineers Biograph Vision™ PET/CT system. The system offers the highest quality images from studies that can be conducted in a fraction of the time required for other systems. Due to the speed of the imaging process of the new system, young patients undergoing studies may require less sedation and in some cases may not need sedation at all.

In addition, the PET-CT suite now features integrated immersive experience technology. Children are empowered to select from among eight graphic themes that can be projected on the wall. The LED light panels change colors to reflect the chosen theme, providing a calming immersive experience for the child and family.
