PET Imaging

Brain imaging tests like PET (Positron Emission Tomography) and MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) are indispensible to researchers studying the brain. These technologies allow researchers to look inside the brain to see the effects of age, progression of disease and many other signs that help determine the overall health of a brain.  They can also help researchers learn how a normally functioning brain works by showing which brain areas are active during certain tasks, and what kinds of variations exist among individuals.

We conduct our PET Imaging at the PET Research Center in Presybeterian Hospital.
