Experience the future of preclinical PET
Better PET starts with image magnification to improve resolution, plus selective collimation to enhance true event detection. The result: crystal-clear images at 0.6 mm resolution for 18F, devoid of noise caused by random and scattered coincidences. But there is more: PET without positron-range blurring (e.g. for 124I or 90Y), simultaneous multiple-isotope PET (e.g.18F and 124I), radiotherapy imaging of alpha- and beta-emitting isotopes, and sub-mm simultaneous PET and SPECT. Visit Booth 801 to learn more. We are sure you will agree: no other preclinical PET comes close to offering the capabilities of MILabs new VECTor6 PET.
MILabs’ VECTor6 PET is part of its scalable 4x4D imaging platform, which includes the cutting-edge PET, SPECT, Optical Tomography & X-ray CT modalities.
MILabs SNMMI 2018 breakfast seminar
Prof. Albert Sinusas, from Yale School of Medicine, will give the Keynote Lecture on Cardiac Nuclear and CT imaging. Prof. Frederik Beekman, TU-Delft/MILabs, will continue his annual tradition of delivering the Scientific Highlights Lecture including the announcement of the 2018 MILabs Image of the Year. Join us Monday morning, June 25th, from 6:45 am – 8:00 am at the Convention Center in Meeting Room 106AB. Learn more here.
High-resolution, low-dose dynamic PET with VECTor
For the first time, researchers at the University of Oxford have succeeded at the direct labeling of unmodified peptides with 18F. To investigate the in vivo stability of peptides functionalized with an [18F]SCF3 moiety, biodistribution profiles were obtained by dynamic low-dose whole-body PET with MILabs’ VECTor/CT. In vivo biodistribution imaging studies correlated very well with ex vivo dissection. Read the full article in Journal of the American Chemical Society here:
Dynamic whole-body PET studies with just 1.4 MBq of 18F-RGD peptide labeled with the Umemoto reagent, demonstrated that excretion is predominantly by the hepatobiliary route and to a lesser extent by the kidneys.
