MicroPET/CT and MicroSPECT/CT

We offer nuclear imaging solutions utilizing dual modality microPET/CT, microSPECT/CT. Our housing facility is managed by LARC and is classified as an “in-and-out” facility that is well suited for longitudinal studies. Our imaging scanners are run by highly trained professionals. We also have imaging science experts to provide additional help on image reconstruction, co-registration, tracer kinetic modeling, and quantifications.
