Our group brings together physicists, computer scientists and engineers in an effort to establish and validate clinical and research protocols using quantitative hybrid imaging technologies, such as PET/CT, PET/MRI and SPECT/CT.
Hybrid imaging modalities are considered hardware combinations of nuclear medicine and radiology imaging systems aiming at:
- Better co-localization of functional/metabolic data in an anatomical framework.
- Improved clinical workflow and logistics.
- The use of either image information for improving the quality and accuracy of the conjoined imaging modality.
