UPENN installs MILabs U-SPECT+ system to advance biomedical research

University of Pennsylvania, in Philadelphia, PA has installed a MILabs U-SPECT+ system to advance several ongoing research topics. The U-SPECT+ delivers ultra-high resolution, sensitivity, and scanning speed yielding quantification results for brain, cardiac, cancer and musculoskeletal applications. The system is installed in the John Morgan Building at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine. Utilization of the system will be led by Research Associate Professor Scott Metzler, PhD. of the Physics and Instrumentation Group of the Department of Radiology. Dr. Metzler’s work focuses on high performance SPECT instrumentation and image reconstruction including the development of adaptive SPECT. Much of this new development work will be a collaboration between the University of Pennsylvania, MILabs and Delft University of Technology (PI Prof. Freek Beekman, Ph.D.). In addition the  Department of Radiology at U-PENN will use the U-SPECT+ in various biomedical applications, such as brain and cardiac research.

MILabs is very excited to have the opportunity to work with such a prestigious institution and team of excellent investigators at the University of Pennsylvania and for the U-SPECT+ system to play such a significant role in supporting the development and advancement of biomedical research.
