Executive Summary

MicroPET, a scanner for use on laboratory animals is under development at the University of California at the Los Angeles Medical School. The system could be used for testing imaging agents and techniques on rats and mice that cannot be imaged in a full size scanner. The compact system can resolve volumes as small as 0.006 cm(3), one tenth a normal PET scanner. It also costs one tenth the price at $300,000. The device should be complete in a few months and produce images by the end of the year.
