MILabs Introduces Futuristic PET Capabilities on New VECTor6 System

Preclinical system offers simultaneous sub-mm imaging of multiple PET, multiple PET/SPECT and virtually all radiotherapy isotopes

MILabs Introduces Futuristic PET Capabilities on New VECTor6 System

June 28, 2018 — At the 2018 Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) annual meeting, June 23-26, in Philadelphia, MILabs introduced the new VECTor6 positron emission tomography (PET) system loaded with innovative features. New features incorporated in its 4x4D omni-tomography design include PET, single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), optical and X-ray computed tomography (CT) imaging modalities.

MILabs CEO and Founder Prof. Frederik Beekman said that the company has long intended to create a multimodality imaging system that can image multiple disease tracers simultaneously at the sub-mm resolution level required to translate research from humanized mouse models to the clinic. He added that by magnifying small-animal images and collimating true tracer photon events, MILabs has improved detection sensitivity and resolution so that minute quantities of both short- and long-lived PET tracers can be imaged within the sub-mm range.

Other user applications include simultaneous sub-mm imaging of multiple PET. multiple PET/SPECT and virtually all radiotherapy isotopes.
