We offer in vivo micro positron emission tomography (PET) study design, execution and data analysis across a broad spectrum of disease models and analytic techniques. Our imaging experts and disease area experts design and execute PET studies for maximal clinical relevance, statistical power, and throughput. Our PET studies are performed using a Siemens Inveon scanner.
Positron emission tomography (PET) is a nuclear medicine imaging technique that generates 3D images of an injected PET radioisotope-labeled molecule in the body. Radiotracer distribution is detected via emitted gamma photons resulting from positron-electron annihilation. PET imaging in the preclinical setting (micro-PET) is increasingly being used in drug discovery to study disease biology and biodistribution and kinetics of biologic molecules.
