3D Multimodality Imaging: See disease in all its dimensions

It’s simple: More information means more understanding,For today’s researchers in oncology, infectious diseases, inflammation, neuroscience, stem cells,and other disciplines, there’s an increasing need for in vivo imaging that enables you to visualize,multiple events simultaneously and to extract the maximum amount of information from each,subject – leading to greater biological understanding.,Multimodal imaging enables a better understanding of disease biology. By utilizing in vivo,optimized bioluminescent and fluorescent agents and radioactive probes, researchers can,measure depth, volume, concentration, and metabolic activity, providing a wealth of information,for untangling the mysteries of disease.,Coregistration allows researchers to overlay images from multiple imaging modalities, providing,more comprehensive insight into the molecular and anatomical features of a model subject.,For example, optical imaging data can be used to identify and quantify tumor burden at,the molecular level and, when integrated with microCT, provides a quantitative 3D view of,anatomical and functional readouts.,At PerkinElmer, we’ve developed industry leading imaging technology for preclinical research.,Our technology integrates 3D optical and PET modalities with microCT to provide a better,understanding of disease. And that means better monitoring of disease progression, earlier,detection of treatment efficacy, and deeper understanding of metabolic changes that take place,throughout disease development.

Setting up a PET Imaging Lab (White Paper)

The Role of PET In Preclinical Imaging,Molecular imaging enables scientists to non-invasively visualize, characterize and quantify,normal and pathologic processes in vivo at the cellular and subcellular level. Positron-emission,tomography (PET) is a molecular imaging technology which utilizes radionucleotides to deliver,high spatial and temporal resolution data. The G-Platform, G4 PET/X-ray and G8 PET/,CT systems, removes many of the technical hurdles for the scientist that may want to,incorporate PET imaging into their research lab. However, there are some regulatory and,safety requirements one must satisfy before the lab is approved to perform PET imaging studies.,This white paper will outline many of the key regulatory and safety considerations, as well as,providing a list of materials to consider purchasing to outfit a preclinical PET imaging facility.
