Nov 10, 2017engineering and tech, health and medicine, physical sciences

In an ongoing effort to increase the accuracy and sensitivity of current PET (positron emission tomography) scanners, Prof Paul Lecoq and his team at CERN research various elements of this particular imaging technique. Inspired by particle physics detectors, the team is making ground-breaking modifications to current PET technology, which will help physicians make more precise diagnoses, implement more accurate treatment plans and increase patient survival rates for a multitude of conditions. From cancer and neurodegenerative conditions through to osteoarthritis and diabetes, all will see improved diagnoses and treatment regimens for an increased number of diseases and patients.
