Workshop: Whole Animal Imaging with mSPECT/mCT

Presented by the Bindley Imaging Group (BIG)

 

When: 9 am - 3 pm, November 8th, 2010

Where: Burton D. Morgan Center for Entrepreneurship, room 129; Scanning & reconstruction demonstration in BBC 158.

 

Micro SPECT (Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography) imaging is an emerging technology, which enables dynamic and three-dimensional visualization of tracer molecules within living animals at unprecedented resolutions (0.35 mm).  This technology has been applied to a diverse set of molecular imaging applications in the Life Sciences, such as monitoring dopamine transporter pathways, assessing myocardial infarction, and targeting cancer specific receptors. The first US installation of the unique MiLabs U-SPECT-II/CT scanner is in the Purdue Bioscience Imaging Facility at the Bindley Bioscience Center.

 

This workshop will convene with a presentation by the technology platform inventor, Dr. Freek Beekman, and then introduce both the operating principles and use of this new technology.  Dr. Beekman is a world-renowned expert on micro SPECT technology and the founder of MiLabs, BV (Utrecht, Netherlands). Next, Dr. Keith Stantz, Assistant Professor of Health Sciences (Purdue) and Adjunct Professor of Radiology (IU School of Medicine), will discuss the logistics of applying this technology to address biological questions of small animal imaging.  Finally, the afternoon session will include a demonstration of animal scanning, image reconstruction, and image analysis.  Laboratory space is limited, so attendees of the afternoon session are asked to RSVP to Luanne Ludwig at lml@purdue.edu  by November 1st.
