Bioscan NanoPET/CT in vivo preclinical imager

Thursday, 07 October, 2010 | Supplied by: Bio-Strategy Pty Ltd

The Bioscan NanoPET/CT in vivo preclinical imager combines high resolution in CT and PET with a large bore size and field of view. The CT has a resolution down to 9 µm and uses helical scanning with volumetric cone-beam technology and a micro-focus source with variable magnification, enabling image clarity and detail while minimising radiation dose to the subject.

The PET and CT systems share the same axis of rotation and scan origin to enable real-time, accurate image fusion, with no quantitation errors due to partial volume effects or image artifacts caused by non-uniform field-of-view sampling. Due to the good crystal density of the NanoPET/CT, spatial resolution is less than 1.2 mm at CFOV.

The bore of 160 mm diameter can accommodate animals up to large NZ rabbits. The system has a small footprint and can be operated in a small room (minimum of 2.85 x 3.12 m) with standard 10 A power and air conditioning. GPU- rather than CPU-based image reconstruction means scans are processed in real time for faster presentation of the 3D images.

Accompanying the systems are the Minerve imaging chambers that maintain the animals in a pathogen-free environment and facilitate the imaging of the animals in multi platforms including MRI. The system provides the ability to gate on the respiratory and cardiac cycle and has a port available for administering of reagents in kinetic studies.
