EXIRAD-3D: Automated 3D Autoradiography
EXIRAD-3D is an automated 3D Autoradiography option for U-SPECT, U-SPECT/CT, VECTor and VECTor/CT. By scanning cryo-cooled tissue samples, such as complete organs, with a dedicated super-resolution EXIRAD-3D SPECT option, researchers can finally eliminate many tedious, time-consuming, and error-prone steps from quantitative 3D autoradiography. Thanks to the excellent energy resolving capabilities of the detectors, one can scan multiple isotopes at the same time to image 3D distributions of different molecules simultaneously, at 0.12 mm resolution. EXIRAD-3D images can be re-sliced in any direction, and automatically overlaid with ultra-high resolution X-ray CT images.
