Preclinical imaging technology developer MR Solutions held an interactive preclinical PET/MR workshop with demonstrations of a new 7-tesla integrated PET/MR multimodality imaging system in Dijon, France, last week.
The Center Georges-François Leclerc organized the event in partnership with MR Solutions to launch a new user group in preclinical PET/MR, with about 60 users from across the world in attendance.
The workshop focused on the benefits of using PET and MR imaging of tumors, hearts, and brains in rodents for oncology, cardiology, and neurology research. Participants also discussed the use of multimodality tracers in PET/MRI and optical imaging to improve visualization results.
The benefits and differences between several of the latest preclinical imaging techniques were examined, including simultaneous PET/MRI and sequential PET/MRI.
