#ALT# Monitoring Cancer Treatments with Immuno-PET

The clinical use of full-length mAbs as imaging agents can be challenging, due to their long biological half-life and relatively slow tumor penetration, which may affect tumor-to-background contrast at early time points. In this webinar, Dr Gabriela Kramer-Marek will focus on HER-specific imaging radioconjugates that could provide unique information as cancer biomarkers, including quantification of receptor heterogeneity and early detection of changes in target expression in response to therapy.

 Myocardial T1 and T2 Mapping
 
Myocardial T1 and T2 MappingThe cardiovascular system can be monitored and its functionality assessed with cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging. New techniques for CMR imaging have been developed in recent years. These include T1 and T2 image mapping, which are non-invasive imaging techniques that have been quickly integrated into normal CMR imaging procedures.
 
 
 New benchtop 3D x-ray microscope introduced by Bruker
 
New benchtop 3D x-ray microscope introduced by BrukerBruker today announced the new SKYSCANTM 1273 benchtop 3D X-ray microscope based on micro-computed tomography (Micro-CT) technology. The SKYSCAN 1273 sets a new standard for non-destructive testing (NDT) with benchtop instruments, providing a performance level previously only achieved by floor standing systems.
