Hybrid Scanner Using Five Molecular Imaging Techniques Under Development

June 30, 2015

Scientists are developing a new molecular, preclinical hybrid imaging system to help find new drugs and to advance imaging research.

The scanner was presented at the 2015 Annual Meeting of the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI; Reston, Virginia, USA), and consists of a window for tissue observation, and an imaging chamber. The scanner is intended for research into the microenvironment of tumors and other tissues, and co-registration of multiple lines of imaging data.
