About our equipment
Two new radionuclide imaging systems were installed in PRIME: IRIS microPET/CT and MILabs microSPECT/CT. Radionuclide imaging relies on the radiotracer principle, where a small amount of a radioactive tracer (e.g. tumor-targeting peptide, therapeutic agent, metabolic substrate) is injected into the body to monitor a biological process in vivo. The scanners can be used for whole body, high resolution (0.1 - 1 mm), static or dynamic imaging in mice and rats.
