MicroPET Facility

The MicroPET Facility, supported by The M. Donald Blaufox Laboratory for Molecular Imaging and NIH (1S10RR029545 ”MicroPET/SPECT/CT Animal Imaging Device”), and associated with the Gruss MRRC, is designed for pre-clinical investigations using MicroPET (positron emission tomography), SPECT (single photon emission tomography) and CT (computed tomography) examination of small animals to phenotype animal models using a wide variety of radiotracers. Facility staff can train investigators in the use of the tools of MicroPET and help design, implement and interpret all studies. The goal of the facility is to provide investigators with quantitative and high-impact preclinical images. The following grant must be acknowledged in papers submitted for publication and in abstracts for submission for conferences: NIH S10RR029545 “MicroPET/SPECT/CT Animal Imaging Device" which supported the purchase of the Inveon imaging scanner
