Tools in Molecular Imaging

Date: 2 may 2019 at 12:30 to 13:30. Thursday.


Place: Salón de grados. Facultad de Farmacia. Campus de Burjasot.


The molecular imaging is a technique of medical image directly linked to nuclear medicine. It allows observing physiological and biochemical processes in our patients. The emission of particles is detected after radioisotopes are injected in order to find out a diagnosis or a therapy. In the meeting, Dr. Antonio J. González (of the Institute of Instrumentation for Molecular Images, I3M) will describe the different methods of instrumentation in Molecular Imaging. The basis of this instrumentation are gamma cameras, which are combined and result in more complex systems such as positron emission tomography (PET) or photon emission computed tomography (SPECT). The evolution of these cameras will be described based on its components, scintillators, photo sensors, collimators or related electronics. The different types of PET systems, its combination with TAC or resonance magnetic imaging (MRI) will be described, too. The level of development of the subject in clinical systems, small animal research or organs (breasts, prostate and brain) will be also described.
