New Positron Emission Tomography/ CT

Positon Emission Tomography
The new PET/CT Scanner is up and running, and is pretty cool, I must say. It is at the 400 East Campus located between the MRI Suite and the Radiology Front Office. If you haven't seen it, you should go check it out sometime, or just look below at the photos !
Things like FDG-18, Decay, Half-life, Radionucleide, Robidium 82, Subsets, Hybrid Imaging, Fusion, Electron Positron Annihilation, and 511 kEv are going on over there. Einstein type stuff. Ask a Nuc tech to explain all of this mumbo jumbo !

Annihalation of a Positron and electron forms 2 gamma Rays that travel 90 degrees apart at about 511 kEv - WOW ! She Blinded me with Science !They have 2 new deluxe injection chairs for patient comfortNuclear Medicine Techs are learning how to operate their new equipment

Norm looks a little confused !
