"473rd Brookhaven Lecture: 'Multimodal Thinking â€" Medical Imaging with Antimatter and Nuclear Spins'"

Presented by David Schlyer, Medical Department, BNL

Wednesday, December 14, 2011, 4:00 pm — Berkner Hall Auditorium

The goal of more accurate diagnoses, fewer unwanted biopsies, and better patient care is in sight. For years, researchers at Brookhaven Lab have been developing new scanners that combine PET and MRI imaging techniques. Now, this new multi-modality imaging â€" which provides both anatomical and functional information from one single scan â€" is proving to be an invaluable tool for research in areas ranging from cancer in humans to water transport in plants.
