Title: Miniature 'Wearable' PET Scanner Ready for Use

Abstract

Scientists from BNL, Stony Brook University, and collaborators have demonstrated the efficacy of a "wearable" portable PET scanner they've developed for rats. The device will give neuroscientists a new tool for simultaneously studying brain function and behavior in fully awake, moving animals.
