Largest U.S. Outpatient Imaging Center Installs First Toshiba Celestion PET/CT System

June 23, 2015 - One of the few PET/CT capable imaging facilities in the Las Vegas area, Steinberg Diagnostic Medical Imaging (SDMI) has bolstered its capabilities by installing the first CelesteionTM PET/CT system in the U.S. from Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. The Celesteion PET/CT sytem is engineered to provide high quality images and exams without sacrificing patient comfort.

“With the Celesteion, we found a wide-bore system that let us scan a variety of patients comfortably, as well as being a more-than-capable planning device for both PET and CT radiation therapy,” said Dr. Mark Winkler, professor of health sciences at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and founding partner of SDMI. “It’s become the preferred system among our patients, as well as giving us the long term outlook of more referrals with the increase in oncological offerings.”

Toshiba introduces all-new Celesteion CT system (pending 510(k) clearance) with the industry’s largest bore and widest field-of-view for better PET/CT imaging.

The Celesteion is designed with the patient in mind, with features that include:
