Preclinical Imaging

Contact: Nadine Colpo

The Small Animal Imaging Resource (SAIR) provides non-invasive preclinical hybrid imaging techniques using computed tomography (CT) with positron emission tomography (PET/CT) or single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT/CT). PET and SPECT offer the ability to assess physiological functions of a tumour/organ that can be correlated to anatomy (CT). Stand-alone CT imaging is also offered with or without IV contrast. Image analysis providing multiple regions of interest and quantitative image snapshots are also available.
