New approach for calculating radiation dosimetry allows for individualized therapy
(Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging) Researchers have developed a simplified process that could enhance personalization of cancer therapy based on a single nuclear medicine scan. The novel method uses a follow-up single photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography (SPECT/CT) scan to obtain reliable radiation dose estimates to tumors and at-risk organs. The study is published in The Journal of Nuclear Medicine. (Source: EurekAlert! - Cancer)

It's true, size really does matter when it comes to laboratory space. But a UK-based company has introduced a solution that could save precious lab space that would otherwise be dedicated to a bulky MRI scanner. MR Solutions said its liquid helium free, pre-clinical, high field MRI scanner is now available in a range of MRI, and multi-modality MRI scanners (with PET and SPECT modules) from 3T up to 9.4T. The company claims to be the only one with an installed base of liquid helium free, high field scanners. As the image above shows, the size and weight comparisons between liquid helium f...
