Tomography (PET) is a powerful imaging technique that provides
information about functional processes in the body by measuring
radiotracer concentration in
. Small animal PET imaging is becoming increasingly
useful as a tool for biological research, as it allows the
investigation of spatio-temporal changes of biological processes with
longitudinal, noninvasive measurements on the same animal.
The RatCAP is a novel miniature PET scanner designed to acquire fully 3D
images of the rat's brain while directly attached to its head. This
allows the animal to be completely mobile, eliminating the confounding
effects of anesthesia on image quantitation.
