The University of Wisconsin Comprehensive Cancer Center (UWCCC) is the first facility to install Siemens’ Inveon preclinical imaging system.
This dockable multimodality system was developed to offer maximum imaging versatility and performance. It allows facilities of perform PET, SPECT or CT individually or in combination, and provides a multimodality upgrade path and comprehensive suite of preclinical analysis applications. The system was demonstrated last week at the Fifth Annual Society of Molecular Imaging (SMI) show in Waikloa, HI.
With the system, researchers can: visualize and characterize disease; answer questions on how diseases progress; evaluate treatments; and transition preclinical studies from the lab to the clinic.
"The Inveon system establishes and delivers the physical limits of PET and CT imaging, pushing researchers to develop molecular imaging agents that are capable of capitalizing on its incredible resolution and sensitivity," said Jamey Weichert, Ph.D., associate professor of Radiology at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. "Within hours of receiving the system, we were able to set up and acquire the first preclinical images."
