UCSF Research Technologist Discusses Cutting-Edge PET/MRI Technology

MRI is an excellent modality to visualize soft tissue as well as functional and morphological details. PET imaging enables physicians to visualize cellular activity and metabolism.

By combining these two innovative tools, we are able to achieve optimal imaging for detecting early stages of abnormal cell growth.

"UCSF offers PET/MRI technology with state-of-the-art, highly sensitive silicon detectors allowing for less radiation dose to our patients," explains Vahid Ravanfar, principal PET/MRI research technologist at UCSF. "We are proud to be on the forefront of this expanding technology."
