The power supply for a PET scanner should deliver the required voltage and current to power the scanner's electronics, detectors, and other components. Given the need for extreme precision in PET scanning, even minor fluctuations in output voltage or current can influence the accuracy of the imaging results. Designed with this precision in mind, Advanced Energy power supplies deliver stable, accurate, and clean power. This ensures reliable imaging results while upholding the safety of patients and technicians.

Combined PET-CT or -MR scanners blend the use of radiopharmaceuticals and cutting-edge imaging technology to generate detailed images of the body's physiological processes and organ locations. The process involves detecting two gamma rays emitted from the annihilation caused by a radioactive + tracer that is injected into the patient's body.

When selecting power supplies for these scanners, considerations such as voltage and current requirements, stability and precision, filtering and noise reduction capabilities, safety features, and customization options are paramount. Choosing a power supply that fulfills these crucial requirements ensures that PET scanners operate with accuracy and reliability, thereby aiding in the detection, staging, and monitoring of various conditions.

The specific power supply requirements of combined PET with CT or MR scanners can vary based on the scanner's design and manufacturer. These devices necessitate a power supply capable of filtering out electrical noise and interference since even minimal interference can adversely affect the accuracy of imaging results.
