This is a transformative advantage because it makes it possible to examine what is happening simultaneously in brain, heart, liver, and other organs in the abdomen. For biomedical research, it opens up completely new horizons in understanding the interactions between different body parts and how the human body functions as a whole. With rapid scanning times, lower radiation doses, and extremely high sensitivity and clearer images, the new scanner is also set to revolutionize patient care. “We are thrilled about having the new generation PET scanner among the first centers in the world! It is a significant investment to Finnish biomedical research and I’m sure that…
