MILabs ultra-high resolution SPECT & PET delivers new opportunities for oncology

Traditionally oncology research have been compromised by limited resolution of SPECT and PET. The lack of details in tumor images often hides essential information. Recently, several publications showed the unique capability of MILabs high performance SPECT and PET systems to shed new light upon micro-heterogeneity of tracer uptake in 3D over time. Please have a look at selected publications below.
