Carestream equips Notre Dame molecular imaging lab
The University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Ind., is using the latest in vivo and in vitro optical molecular imaging technology from Carestream Molecular Imaging, as part of its research of infectious disease, bone disease, cancer and other medical applications.

The In Vivo Imaging Core, part of the recently commissioned Notre Dame Integrated Imaging Facility (NDIIF), chose the Kodak In-Vivo Multispectral Imaging System FX for its multi-modal molecular imaging needs, according to the company. The imaging facility utilizes the system for various imaging techniques, including chemiluminescent, fluorescent, x-ray and radioisotopic applications.

Notre Dame's In Vivo Imaging Facility focuses on non-invasive methods to observe and image various disease models and biological processes in living systems. It is co-located with the Freimann Life Science Center (FLSC), which provides veterinary services. Together, the NDIIF and FSLC provide animal care and imaging services to a range of investigators at the University and regional levels.
