New PET Tracer Capable of Accurately Pinpointing Life-Threatening Blood Clots

June 29, 2015

Researchers have demonstrated that a new molecular imaging technique using Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and a new radiotracer Cu-64 FBP8 can accurately pinpoint nearly all thrombi throughout the body of laboratory rats.

Scientists revealed the technique in a study presented at the 2015 Annual Meeting of the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI; Reston, Virginia, USA).
