Facility Details

Core focuses on imaging in nuclear medicine, and engages in collaboration with clinicians and research investigators to optimize new instruments for applications in both clinical and pre clinical (animal) imaging scenarios. Offers equipment to build, test and characterize detectors for PET imaging, operates cluster of high powered Linux computers, which reconstruct, process, and analyze imaging data. Focuses on technology, which increases signal to noise of reconstructed images for whole body studies. Conducts research on SPECT imaging with emphasis on applications to small animal and brain imaging, oversees operation of cyclotron and imaging probe synthesis facilities.
