A team of researchers in the Molecular Imaging Center Antwerp (MICA), Belgium and Molecular Imaging Technologies Inc. (MTTI) of West Chester, PA, USA has received the award for “Image of the Year” in the 2017 MILabs Preclinical Image of the Year contest.
MTTI’s TumorVue tracer (Tc-99m-Duramycin) was to detect cancer treatment response as early as one day after a single administration of conatumumab. The objective was to compare responses of TumorVue SPECT to the gold standard FDG-PET. According to Prof. S. Strobants, Head of the Department of Nuclear Medicine of the University Hospital of Antwerp, TumorVue SPECT illustrates that one can effectively discriminate responders from non-responders. Read more

Introduction of new VECTor5OI/CT enjoys overwhelming success
The new VECTor5OI/CT system: the game-changing fusion of molecular nuclear and optical imaging with true 4D UHR diagnostic CT.
At the SNMMI 2017 conference in Denver, MILabs unveiled its new Series-5 PET, SPECT, OI, CT.  While this new VECTor5OI/CT system looks similar to its predecessor, it features some significant performance improvements and multimodality enhancements, plus a game-changing 4D diagnostic UHR-CT.
On a single, scalable platform, the system offers hexamodal PET, SPECT, X-ray CT, bioluminescence, fluorescence and Cherenkov imaging. In addition, the system can now also handle ex vivo specimen with Exirad-3D SPECT at 150-micron resolution and CT imaging down to 2.5-micron voxel sizes. Better yet, for in vivo animal imaging, the system will deliver PET and SPECT images with unprecedented resolutions: 0.25 mm for SPECT and 0.6 mm for PET. However, one of the most innovative capabilities of the VECTor5OI/CT platform is the hardware and software fusion of molecular nuclear and optical imaging with true 4D diagnostic CT.  Now think about the application possibilities this offers. Read more
Customer in the spotlight: Dr. Ann-Marie Chacko, PhD of Duke-NUS in Singapore
Dr. Ann-Marie Chacko heads the Duke-NUS Laboratory for Translational and Molecular Imaging (LTMI) and is an Assistant Professor in the Duke-NUS Programme in Cancer and Stem Cell Biology. Dr. Chacko’s research program is dedicated to the preclinical characterization of molecularly targeted systems as diagnostics and/or therapeutics for translational applications. Using advanced state-of-the-art multi-modal small animal imaging platforms, a major thrust of LTMI is to develop in vivo imaging approaches to non-invasively assess biologic, prognostic and therapeutic biomarkers for cancer, brain and immune function, and infectious diseases. Read the entire interview here.
