Come see Cubresa’s NuPET™ at the 2017 SNMMI Annual Meeting in Denver

Reveal disease & therapeutic mechanisms with simultaneous molecular & functional imaging

Become empowered with simultaneous multimodal molecular & functional preclinical imaging with the high-performance quantitation of PET and the excellent soft tissue contrast and functional imaging capabilities of MRI — at the same time, under identical physiological conditions. Cubresa exhibited in Booth 922 at the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging in Denver, June 10 to 14, 2017 and showed how our NuPET™ MR-compatible in-bore PET scanner can add new insights to your preclinical research and boost confidence in your data.

With simultaneous PET/MRI acquisition from within the bore of the MRI, registration errors that occur when an animal is moved just a few feet from one scanning system to another are eliminated. Oncology and cardiology experiments involve respiratory and cardiac motion, and in neuroscience, physiological changes within the brain can occur rapidly. Having two highly complementary, spatially and temporally registered data sets is ideal for revealing the complex relationships between in vivo processes.

With NuPET, total scan time can be significantly reduced and the cumulative stress on fragile, sometimes older animals can be lessened because animal throughput is increased because of the simplified PET/MRI acquisition workflow. Since anesthesia impacts many important physiological parameters like cerebral blood flow and glucose metabolism in a dose-dependent way, less anesthesia exposure can also reduce the risk of spurious experimental outcomes and can reduce the number of animals needed to reach statistically meaningful conclusions.

Designed to offer small-animal imaging facilities maximum PET imaging flexibility and utilization, NuPET’s compact footprint also lets it be used for standalone PET imaging in the morning, and be wheeled into an MRI room in the afternoon to be ready in minutes for simultaneous PET/MRI studies.

Make an appointment to speak with us even if you could not make it to SNMMI to discuss how we can provide you with an invaluable new tool for your research, combining the tremendous molecular sensitivity of PET with an existing MRI system.
