BOSTON, Oct. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — With the successful installation of the 100th Mediso multi-modality preclinical PET system, the Tulane National Primate Research Center (TNPRC), division of the Tulane University, has become the fourth site in North America to install the MultiScan LFER150 PET/CT preclinical imager.
In keeping with the mission of the center, the MultiScan LFER150 PET/CT will help enable researchers to improve human and animal health by using non-invasive in-vivo imaging techniques to find better treatments for major infectious diseases. The MultiScan LFER 150 PET/CT is the only research-focused, large bore integrated PET/CT scanner supporting whole-body imaging of non-human primates (NHPs) and smaller animal models at sub-millimeter PET resolution. The system features the most versatile integrated PET/CT gantry ever built, enabling dynamic studies both in lying and sitting position, required for awake NHP studies. Due to its unique construction, CT and PET systems share the same field-of-view, eliminating the need for moving the subject during acquisition.
The LFER150 PET/CT will support TNPRC’s research program in infectious diseases, particularly in tuberculosis research focused on vaccine development, pathogenesis, and therapeutics.
“We have invested years to make the LFER150 PET/CT a dedicated and effective tool for imaging nonhuman primates for both PET and CT modalities. We are proud to be working with prestigious institutions like the TNPRC”, says Illes Muller, Managing Partner of Mediso USA. Like all preclinical PET/CT systems from Mediso, the LFER150 has been designed for quantitative assessment of PET and CT studies.
