The SuperArgus PET/CT incorporates state-of-the-art detectors and electronics as the latest evolution of the Argus PET/CT family of scanners.




The SuperArgus line of instruments include PET only, CT only, or combined PET/CT systems, with a wide range of available bore sizes allowing for a variety of animal models to be imaged. These state-of-the-art systems incorporate a phoswich PET detector, which provides true depth of interaction (DoI) information resulting in enhanced resolution. The systems are self-shielded, allowing them to be installed in any existing laboratory or animal facility space, without the need for additional infrastructure.
