Clinical PET

The latest acquisition of scanning technology at Newcastle is a PET-MRI scanner.

A new PET-MRI scanner was delivered to Newcastle University in April 2016. The scanner is a Signa PET-MRI scanner from GE Healthcare which combined 3T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanning with molecular imaging by positron emission tomography (PET).

The scanner is part funded by the Medical Research Council as part of a network of new scanners to be used for research into dementia.

The project is part of the Dementia Partnership UK.
