(positron emission tomography)
We continuously improve our technology, as we are clear that technology and research means new opportunities for our patients.
The Nuclear Medicine Service has a high resolution positron emission tomograph for the study of human disease models in small animals. The work carried out consists of experimental research.
This is a functional imaging technique at a molecular level that provides valuable information on biochemical, physiological, pathological or pharmacological processes in vivo.
The data can be obtained in a non-invasive, quantitative and repetitive way of the biological function in live animals. In this way, it allows the longitudinal monitoring of the animal throughout the whole experimental process.
