Time Perspective: Cross-Sectional
Official Title: ROMAN (PCA-9000A) PET/CT System Verification

Further study details as provided by Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc.:

Estimated Enrollment: 30
Study Start Date: November 2012
Estimated Primary Completion Date: February 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:


To evaluate the new technologies that have been included in the PCA-9000A PET/CT System, the study has the following 3 goals.

  • Define and confirm all supported clinical protocols from Low-Dose CT, to PET acquisition and presentation.
  • Verification of the quantitative accuracy of the imaging chain.
  • Evaluate the performance and stability of the new system and its related quality control and calibration procedures.

Result (Expected):

The study is an essential step in assessing the quality of the hardware and software defining the new PCA-9000A PET/CT System. Several essential parameters for the acquisition, reconstruction, correction, filtering, and presentation will be estimated or adjusted during this period. The evaluation will confirm PCA-9000A PET/CT System is effective for its intended use.
