The ultimate tool for PET imaging in primates and medium sized animals
The MultiScan™ Large Field-of-view Extreme Resolution PET/CT system offering molecular imaging with high spatial resolution and quantitative accuracy in a gantry that supports all possible non-human primate (NHP) studies. Fine crystal needles and advanced detector modelling of the TeraTomo™ reconstruction enable to resolve 1 mm structures. Our highly refined detector technology and dead time estimation maintain 97% quantitative accuracy up to 150 MBq activity level. The PET and CT modalities can image the very same region of space, making any patient movement unnecessary in a single field of view study; and together with freely tiltable detector even enable awake imaging with visual stimuli.
Precise quantification of tiny objects, like the Substantia Nigra in the brain or Tuberculosis granulomas in the lungs, require high spatial resolution.
Applications involving short half-life isotopes, like 11C and 15O or long scan times, like cell tracking require good quantitative accuracy over a wide range of radioactivity levels.
The isotropic high spatial resolution of the CT system is very suitable for characterizing and tracking tuberculosis granulomas.
Noise performance and soft tissue contrast are improved by iterative CT reconstruction.
There are 7 MultiScan™ LFER150 PET/CT running worldwide in laboratories operating under biosafety level 3 (BSL-3) conditions.
These systems perform up to 1000 scans per year and regularly endure sterilization.
Research is focusing on wide range of infectious diseases including vaccine development for CoVid-19.
The compact and versatile gantry has two animal support modules:
