Mini-symposium PET imaging: From tracer development to non-clinical and clinical applications

On the 19th of November, MIRaCLe (Molecular Imaging Research and Clinic Leuven) is hosting a mini-symposium in celebration of the installation of a new R&D PET tracer production lab and two new microPET cameras and one microCT camera (Molecubes).

During the mini-symposium, we will highlight all possibilities of the MIRaCLe platform from radiotracer development over preclinical imaging and kinetic modelling to the clinical use of radiopharmaceuticals. These four topics will be covered by national and international experts.
