An MILabs VECTor+ system had been recently installed at the world-renown Johns Hopkins University, School of Medicine, to further expand their translational molecular imaging research. The VECTor+ became Johns Hopkins’ molecular imaging system of choice because of its superior spatial resolution, quantitative accuracy and scanning speed for single-photon emission computerized tomography (SPECT) and positron emission tomography (PET), in addition to its unique capability of true simultaneous SPECT/PET acquisition.

The VECTor+ was installed at the Johns Hopkins Molecular Imaging Center / Cancer Functional Imaging Core and will be heavily used to enhance their existing projects, mainly for brain, cardiac cancer and musculoskeletal research as well as for new radiopharmaceuticals development. The research with VECTor+ will be coordinated by Benjamin M. W. Tsui, Ph.D. (Professor of Radiology and Director of the Division of Medical Imaging Physics, Department of Radiology) and Martin G. Pomper, M.D., Ph.D. (Co-Director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence).

Johns Hopkins is hosting the In Vivo Preclinical Imaging Workshop on March 11-13, co-hosted by the SNMMI and the University of Virginia. To learn more about the system, please plan your trip to Baltimore to attend this workshop as MILabs will have a significant presence as a “Diamond” sponsor.  The final day of the workshop will include the actual hands-on sessions with the MILabs VECTor+ system.  Please register here for the workshop.
