Molecular Imaging Core

The Molecular Imaging Core images animals and cells by several techniques: MRI, ultrasound, bioluminescence, fluorescence, PET, and images from different modalities can be combined. A cyclotron produces radioisotopes which the Radiochemistry Laboratory uses to make radioactive targeted ligands for non-invasive Positron Emission Tomography (PET) imaging. The Radiochemistry Laboratory synthesizes established radiotracers and assists development of novel imaging agents.

Resource Description

The Core asks that a detailed description of the facilities in the Molecular Imaging Core is included in grants.
