PhD in Developing Revolutionary Tomography for Imaging Molecules, Netherland
About the Program:
Tomography along radiolabeled molecules (PET and SPECT) is key for discovering mechanisms of disease, new pharmaceuticals and diagnostic tracers. This project aims at developing a novel PET-SPECT scanner that
- Allows quantitative tomography for virtually any available gamma, positron or co-emitting tracer molecule (30 keV – 1 MeV energy range).
- Permits quantitative imaging of any tracer combination including multiple PET isotopes.
- Requires an order of magnitude higher effective sensitivity for high-energy gamma emitters than current scanners.
Using this platform (universal molecular tomography), students will discover
1 Highly efficient gamma detectors.
2 Innovative collimator designs.
3 Image reconstruction with universal energy dependent models for high energy and co emitting gamma and positron emitters.
