  1. SPECT animal imager


  1. Resource Description
    "NanoSPECT/CT is a Small-Animal Imager that achieves unparalleled performance in the field of Nuclear Molecular Imaging. By using Multiplexed Multi-Pinhole (MMP) SPECT technology, NanoSPECT/CT is the first SPECT animal imager that overcomes the resolution vs. sensitivity trade-off. The CT option for the NanoSPECT is a high-resolution X-ray system using volumetric cone-beam technology. By using 4 large broadband detectors--and MMP SPECT technology--NanoSPECT/CT increases imaging sensitivity at least 10-fold and improves spatial resolution to the sub-mm range. The system can provide high-resolution whole-body mouse image using commonly available I-125 in vitro tracers. Combined with the precision & accuracy of helical scanning, this technology yields uniform sub-mm resolutions--and high sensitivity--for both focused & whole-body imaging. Quantitation errors due to partial volume effects are eliminated as are image artifacts caused by non-uniform field-of-view sampling. NanoSPECT/CT tracks a range of biological processes from metabolism to receptors, from gene-expression to cell-trafficking, and from drug activity to many others."
