Animal researchers have a new tool-a gamma camera for rodents. Siemens’ new M.CAM has been optimized for molecular imaging on mice and rats. The system was designed, developed, and tested in collaboration with molecular imaging researcher Dr. Ralph Weissleder and his imaging group at Harvard University. The camera’s capabilities include hybrid low-energy/medium-energy imaging, tomography at both low and medium energies, and ultrahigh spatial resolution.
