A method and device is described for correcting PET images for the attenuation of effects of the tissues and periodic movements of the patient. The device provides gamma-rays for image registration along with the CT scan. The gamma-rays are detected by the same detectors that form the emission PET scan. The device for generating the gamma-rays is a rod that contains an array of detectors, and a radioactive source that emits two rays in coincidence with each other. One of these rays is a gamma ray, and the other can be a beta ray, an alpha ray, or a low energy x-ray. The position of the rod, which is moveable within the ring of the PET scanner, is monitored so that its position can be coordinated with the signals generated from the ring detectors.

DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Prescient, a Denver-based software design and structural system manufacturing company, is being used in three student housing projects, demonstrating its integrated software, engineering and pre-manufactured metal framing system positively impacts the fundamental economics of construction in this sector. The projects include a residence hall for Colorado Christian University in Lakewood, Colorado, “The Corner,” an eight-story dormitory at the University of Texas in Austin, Texas, and the 504-bed 42nd Street dormitory at the University of South Florida in Tampa, Florida. “The Prescient system enabled significant overall schedule compression, which is a big advantage in delivering any construction project,” said Scott Miller, senior project manager for GE Johnson Construction, general contractor for Colorado Christian University. Miller noted Prescient’s high-quality and swift installation — the structure and framing for the 90,000 square foot building were installed in only seven weeks — enabled the entire project to be completed in just 10 months. “On-time delivery was especially critical. By using the Prescient system we were able to accelerate our entire construction schedule,” said Miller. The Prescient structural system also allows projects to achieve higher density by adding floors without incurring cost increases normally associated with structural systems of more than six stories, like “The Corner,” a 207-bed, 80,000 square foot project that broke ground in June on the University of Texas’ West campus. “Prescient was a perfect fit for this student housing project,” said Christopher Szeliga, vice president, JE Dunn Construction. “Cost savings are inherent with this system when compared to concrete or steel, which enabled us to add an additional floor. JE Dunn is excited to be building the first Prescient project in Austin,” he added. For the 42nd Street project, a six-story, 225,000 square foot student dormitory being built by CBG Building Company in Tampa, Florida, the most important considerations for utilizing the Prescient system were speed of installation, lower cost and reduced risk. “Using Prescient’s integrated design and construction system was the key factor in making this project a reality,” said Chris Hirst, senior vice president at CBG Building Company. “The speed and accuracy at which the Prescient system can be erected enables us to trim months off our construction schedule, to say nothing of reducing the risks associated with on-site labor shortages currently plaguing our industry,” he added. Hirst added the Prescient platform allows the introduction of mechanical, electrical and plumbing rough-in crews earlier in the process as well, which contributes to a shortened overall construction duration. “This system is the next evolution in construction. CBG Building Company recognized the potential of the Prescient platform early in its evolution and we intend to utilize the system as much as possible in the future,” Hirst stated. In addition to these projects, Prescient has numerous upcoming projects at universities across the country in their development pipeline. “We helped transform the economics of these projects while delivering a better product that is non-combustible, termite resistant and mold-proof. In addition to providing a significant cost advantage, we enabled some of the buildings to go taller since our technology platform is capable of going up to 14 stories high. We dramatically reduced time-to-market, mitigating risk for the developers and general contractors from design to installation. Net-net, lower costs coupled with higher density and faster completion schedules helped deliver better project internal rates of return and superior return on investment,” said Satyen Patel, chairman of Prescient. Prescient is a technology and manufacturing company with an innovative design platform that offers a faster, greener and more cost-effective alternative to conventional building structures. Prescient’s primary market segment is multi-unit buildings including apartments, student housing, senior living and hotels.

ARVADA, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Prescient, a fully integrated, proprietary and patented design, engineering, manufacturing and installation solution for the construction industry, announced today the completion of two senior housing projects located in Stuart, Fla., and Lonetree, Colo. This marks Prescient’s entry into the senior living category, increasing the company’s presence across the multi-unit housing spectrum in five categories, including: market-rate apartments, student dorms, hotels and armed forces housing. The company’s most recent senior living project, Providence Living at Stuart, owned by Providence One Partners LLC and located in Stuart, Fla., is a 108,000-square-foot, two-story structure that includes 68 assisted living units and 32 memory care suites. The project was designed by Baker Barrios and constructed with F.M. Harvey Construction. The company’s first senior living project, MorningStar at Ridgegate, owned by MorningStar Senior Living, features one-story, three-story and five-story interconnected wings built using Prescient’s proprietary software and framing system. The 250,000-square-foot project consists of 124 independent living units, 71 assisted living units and 29 memory care suites. The project was designed by Lantz Boggio Architects, built by Haselden Construction and developed in conjunction with Jirsa Hedrick Structural Engineers. “Our system is ideal for senior living projects,” said Satyen Patel, chairman and CEO of Prescient. “The Prescient platform is significantly more cost-efficient compared to concrete or wood, and our ability to accommodate different types of units allows us to trim months off typical construction schedules, which means minimized neighborhood disruption and an expedited track to earnings, return on investment and project internal rate of return for developers.” Prescient structures consist of a combination of pre-assembled steel posts, trusses and panels that are custom-manufactured using Prescient’s proprietary design software. The system is a viable option for senior housing projects because it is a non-combustible solution that minimizes disruption in the areas surrounding the construction zone and reduces the need for rework, helping owners meet timelines and budgets. Prescient, which recently expanded its Arvada headquarters and manufacturing facility and broke ground on an East Coast manufacturing plant in Mebane, N.C., is on track to complete nearly 2 million square feet of projects during 2016 in market-rate apartments, hotels, armed forces housing, student housing and senior living segments in Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Missouri, Nebraska, North Carolina, Oklahoma and Texas. Prescient is a software design, engineering, manufacturing and installation company that provides an innovative design platform made of light gauge structural steel that offers a faster, greener and more cost-effective alternative to conventional building structures. Prescient provides multi-unit housing up to 16 stories high, including apartments, student housing, senior living, hotels and armed forces housing. • Durable: it will not rot, warp, shrink, split, crack or creep and is resistant to moisture and insect infestation. • Lightweight: it is easy to handle and is straight, uniform and consistent in quality. • Strong: cold formed steel has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any building material, so Prescient meets the highest seismic and wind load specifications with allowable stress values ranging from 21,000 to 33,000 pounds per square inch. • Fire Resistant: the Prescient system is non-combustible, does not burn or contribute fuel to the spread of a fire and may help secure lower insurance rates. The company is backed by Kanusul Investments Pte. Ltd., a private equity fund based in Singapore. For more information, visit the company website, Twitter feed or Facebook page.

ARVADA, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Prescient, a fully integrated and patented design, engineering, manufacturing and installation solution for the construction industry, announced today an ongoing partnership with Trammell Crow Residential (TCR) and the completion of two innovative apartment projects in Denver. Alexan Uptown is Prescient’s tallest structure to date in Denver. The 12-story, 372-unit apartment building features more than 450,000 square feet of total building area and consists of eight stories of Prescient structure on top of a four-story concrete podium. The project, owned by Trammell Crow Residential, was contracted by Martines Palmeiro Construction, designed by Kephart Architects and engineered alongside Anchor Engineering. “I first came to know Prescient four years ago and recognized they possessed a unique value proposition – a better way to design and build multi-unit buildings,” said Matthew Schildt, managing director of development at Trammell Crow Residential. “Prescient had developed a standardized structural system and design software that promised to expedite the process and deliver significant savings.” TCR and Prescient’s second conjunctive apartment project, The Alexan Cherry Creek apartments, boasts 156,000 square feet of Prescient structure. The eight-story building includes 164 units. The project was completed in partnership with architect Shears Adkins Rockmore. “To date, we have finished two projects with the Prescient structural system and have three more in planning for 2017 and 2018. By embracing Prescient’s technology and standardized approach to design and construction we are seeing compressed design and construction schedules and a better, more cost-effective result,” said Schildt. “Working with Trammell Crow Residential on multiple projects has enabled our teams to fully utilize Prescient’s standardized design, engineering and construction platform. We’ve been able to optimize designs to work with our framing system, leading to significantly lower costs, better execution in the field and shorter construction schedules. Applying advanced design and construction technology to the construction process mitigates the typical risks associated with large multi-unit projects,” said John Vanker, founder of Prescient. Prescient, which recently expanded its 12-acre, 120,000 square foot Arvada, Colorado, headquarters and manufacturing facility, is on track to complete 1.5 million square feet of projects during 2016. In February 2017, Prescient will begin production at its 10-acre site near Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina. The company is building a 135,000 square foot manufacturing facility to more efficiently service markets along the East Coast up and down the I-95 corridor from Maine to Miami and all markets east of the Mississippi River. “Prescient is fast becoming the urban-infill solution of choice in Denver. Our partnership with Trammell Crow Residential has been the cornerstone of our growth in this city, and we’re thankful for that,” said Satyen Patel, chairman and CEO of Prescient. In 2016, Prescient expanded its footprint with projects beyond Colorado, including Florida, Texas, Missouri and Nebraska. In 2017, the company will expand its presence with projects in Illinois, Indiana, Oklahoma, North Carolina, Georgia, Virginia, Maryland, Washington, D.C., Kentucky and Tennessee. “Having established a solid base in Denver, our goal now is to expand into every NFL city nationwide over the next few years,” said Patel. “Our value proposition positively impacts the entire supply chain of construction. We help deliver better outcomes, stronger project internal rates of return and higher overall return on investments by impacting time, money and risk at every stage of the project’s execution, from concept to commercialization.” To date, Prescient has finished 10 projects in the greater Denver area with several developers across a wide-spectrum of multi-family housing categories, ranging from market-rate apartments to student housing, hotels and senior-living projects. In 2017, the company has 10 more projects scheduled for Denver and more than 20 additional projects nationwide.
