  • Mediso
Nanoscan
The nanoScan PET/CT has the highest spatial resolution on the market at 0.3 mm. The nanoScan’s 11 cm bore size is suitable for imaging mice and rats. The LYSO:Ce based detectors have > 6% sensitivity with image quantification accuracy over 97%. Attenuation correction is accomplished with the CT module, which can image at 10 µm resolution. The GPU based reconstruction is performed during acquisition, with reconstruction often finishing only minutes after acquisition is completed. Therefore the system is capable of high throughput without compromising image quality.

CAMI staff

The Center for Advanced Molecular Imaging (CAMI) provides access to imaging modalities ranging from the nanometer scale to whole animal imaging. These include MRI, nuclear imaging (PET, SPECT, and CT), in vivo bioluminescence and fluorescence imaging, animal housing and prep spaces, and tissue culture.  Image analysis services are available, as are software packages (JIM, Amira, Matlab) and a workstation for users to perform their own data analysis.  Imaging services can be provided for investigators' own animal models, or animal models can be supplied by the Developmental Therapeutics Core.

CAMI also houses a 2 photon confocal microscope operated by QBIC and atomic force microscopes operated by NIFTI.
