Tuesday April 13th 12 pm – 13 pm link to the online workshopThis course belongs to the list of seminars from the PhD in life science of the UNIL (0.5 ECTS, please send your form electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org and he will return it to you signed)
Course name : Molecular imaging with small animal PET/SPECT/CT
The microPET/CPECT/CT are in vivo, (semi-)quantitative, molecular imaging modalities for small animal models of human diseases. It has a wide spectrum of application in biomedical research ranging from fundamental studies of healthy biology processes to molecular targeting of tumors or other associated pathological developments.
The seminar aims to present the basic principles of radioactivity and the three most common types of radionuclide decay. Then, the PET and SPECT techniques will be introduced and it will be explained how they are working from the radioactivity detection to the image generation. In addition, the concept of radiotracer will be defined and the most commons will be presented. Finally, examples of basic and advanced microPET/SPECT/CT applications will be shown.
- Remind the basic concept of radioactivity
- Understand the PET and SPECT detection principles
- Learn about radiotracers
- Understand advantage and limitation of microPET/SPECT/CT through examples
Course duration : 30-45 minutes.
If you would like to know more about what we are doing, or to learn how MRI, PET/CT, two-photon microscope, and IVIS are working and how to improve your images please join us to our seminars this year.
We are happy to offer you the full IMARIS package, if you have a specific biological question please ask us or watch Imaris home schools.
Upgrade from Imaris for Cell Biologists (CL) to Imaris for Core Facilities (CF)
Imaris for Core Facilities (CF) : The package consists of one set of licenses for
Imaris including each of the following modules: MeasurementPro, ClearView
Deconvolution, ImarisTrackLineage, ImarisColoc, ImarisXT, ImarisCell,
FilamentTracer , ImarisVantage, ImarisBatch and ImarisStitcher . It is ideally suited for researchers who need the entire functionality of Imaris on a single dedicated as a floating license.
