Manufacturer: Bioscan, Nano PET CT. Installed 2011.

The Bioscan NanoPET/CT provides a high-precision gantry for exact alignment of PET/CT data. The gantry bore opening is 16cm and accommodates imaging of mice, rats and rabbits with interchangeable beds and radiation shields. A complete 360o PET detector ring consisting of 12 modules provides the ultra high resolution and sensitivity, with the reconstructed resolution in the centre of the field of view being less than 1.0mm.

PET and/or CT scanning can extend up to 300mm in the axial direction by automated translation of the bed for whole body imaging, with a transaxial range of 45-125mm. Real time reconstruction of CT data can achieve voxel sizes in the range of 13-37 microns.

The post-processing software “InVivoScope” is available for image visualisation, quantification and analysis, including co-registration of PET with CT volumes.
Low dose CT protocols (<50mGy for a 3 minute scan) are compatible with longitudinal rodent studies.

Imaging chambers provide integrated animal support, with gas anaesthesia, controlled heating and probes for intravenous injection.

– Open access system with a one-step animal loading procedure and singlemotion PET and CT acquisition to enable automatic fusion of PET and CT images
– Integrated preclinical animal handling system including plug-in animal beds with remote transfer of gas anesthesia, temperature controlled environment, repeatable positioning of the animal model
