Molecular Imaging Core Unit

Head of Unit:  Francisca Mulero
Overview

Molecular imaging involves specialised instrumentation, used alone or in combination with targeted imaging agents, to visualise tissue characteristics and/or biochemical markers. The data generated from molecular imaging studies can be used to help understand biological phenomena, identify regions of pathology, and provide insight regarding the mechanisms of disease. At the Molecular Imaging Unit, we offer state-of-the-art techniques such as Positron Emission Tomography (PET), Computed Tomography (CT), Ultrasounds (US) and Densitometry (DeXa)
