Notre Dame selects Carestreams PET/SPECT/CT preclinical system
The University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Ind., has added Carestream Molecular Imaging’s Albira system to its In Vivo Imaging Core, part of the Notre Dame Integrated Imaging Facility (NDIIF).

With the addition of PET, SPECT and CT capabilities, the NDIIF will serve the imaging research needs of faculty from the departments of biology, engineering, physics, chemistry and biochemistry. The Albira system will enable NDIIF to support researchers studying oncology, cardiovascular, pulmonary and neurodegenerative disease, according to the Woodbridge, Conn.-based Carestream Molecular.

The company said its Albira system features a modular architecture that introduces a single crystal detector and associated electronics for acquisition and reconstruction of quantitative PET and SPECT images.
