Applications in PRIME
The PET/CT and SPECT/CT scanners in PRIME can be used for the following applications in mice and rats:
- imaging metabolic/biochemical processes;
- imaging receptor expression;
- imaging gene expression;
- imaging in vivo migration of cells.
The CT scanner (i.e. without PET or SPECT) can be used for the following applications in mice and rats:
- high resolution (20-40 µm) focused CT scans;
- medium resolution (140-200 µm) whole body CT scans;
- bone density measurements.
