“Micro”-instruments for molecular imaging with PET and SPECT

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The ever increasing popularity of small animal imaging with radio-tracers has been made possible by recent technological progress in image resolution and machine sensitivity (1). The ability to trace the spatial and temporal evolution and distribution of radio-labeled molecules in appropriate animal models offers researchers the opportunity to study disease progression, tumor growth, gene expression, and pharmacokinetics of new drugs in new and valuable ways.
