Whole Body PET/MR Imaging System

January 25, 2011
The new PET/MR system integrates the molecular imaging capabilities of PET (positron emission tomography) with the superior soft tissue contrast of MR (magnetic resonance) to image disease cells as they proliferate in soft tissue. Dr. Zahi Fayad, Professor of Radiology and Medicine (Cardiology), and Director of the Translational and Molecular Imaging Institute, Icahn School of Medicine in New York, discusses the new imaging system.
