Overview

PET/CT acquisitions can last several minutes. In these cases, breath holding is not an option. Consequently, the resulting motion artifacts can significantly distort an image, which can lead to image misinterpretation, misrepresentation of lesion size, apparent reduction of measured SUV, and the overlooking of smaller lesions. Moreover, motion artifacts may directly impact radiotherapy planning, treatment, and interpretation of treatment response over time.

Motion VUE lets you review and analyze PET and CT images acquired on a PET/CT scanner equipped with a respiratory gating system, and following respiratory motion correction. With it, you can display fused gated PET and CT images, employ a multi-phase cine review tool, fully customize your layouts, and you can quantify uptake activity. Motion VUE also helps you understand lesion displacement in both PET and CT gated acquisitions.

Intended Use

MotionVUE is a PET/CT, non- invasive image analysis software application designed to support the viewing and manipulation of medical images from PET and CT imaging modalities.

MotionVUE offers processing tools to optimize workflow of respiratory gated exams for PET, CT and fused images of respiratory gated datasets for simultaneous viewing in multiplanar volumes and cine loops.

With MotionVUE, users will have the possibility to compare static PET/CT, 4D-PET/CT series including visual comparison, quantification of lesions, and analysis of functional activity.
