Biograph Vision features the company's new Optiso ultradynamic range (UDR) detector technology, which is based on silicon photomultipliers (SiPMs) rather than photomultiplier tubes (PMTs). In addition, the lutetium oxyorthosilicate (LSO) crystal elements are 3.2 x 3.2 mm for enhanced spatial resolution.

Siemens also highlighted Biograph Vision's reduced scan time and decreased radiation exposure to patients, as well as its 78-cm bore for enhanced positioning and advanced applications in radiation therapy planning.
