HUNGARY

Medical and Preclinical Imaging Hungary


The Medical and Preclinical Imaging Hungary is a multi-sited, multimodal Node covering biomedical imaging, both preclinical and medical. The specialty of the Node is functional imaging. Each site specializes in at least one technique in which it has high expertise: quantitative autoradiologic measurements, microCT, PET, clinical SPECT/CT and PET/CT. Thus, users have access to a very broad scope of functional imaging techniques.

Specialties and expertise of the Node

We are convinced that our concept of Molecules through Mice to Man (M3) concept is unique in Europe. Any user can access our full integrated line of imaging systems, and we are capable to handle the whole process from molecular level characterization through preclinical imaging to human clinical studies.

Offered Technologies

ISIDORe is a Horizon Europe funded project that brings together 154 partners from 32 countries around the world, and is designed to effectively support research on infectious diseases and increase preparedness for pandemic.

Additional services offered by the Node

The Node offers preclinical MiniPET, NanoPET-MRI and nano-SPECT-CT scanners. Beside these, clinical equipment for PET/SPECT-CT is also available. Functional Ultrasound (fUS), also coupled to SPECT/CT, can be provided. The MRI scanner is a Bruker Pharmascan 4.7T. Additional instrumentation include a Phosphore Imager and a LEICA CM3600 cryomacrotome.

One of the sites of the Node has all the 4 imaging modality (PET-MRI, SPECT-CT) in one room for preclinical use. Moreover, the Translation Research Center is the demo site one of the worldwide known company in the field of preclinical imaging. Besides the imaging facilities our Node have a cyclotron facility with 16 MeV medical cyclotron which can produce isotopes not only for traditional PET imaging.
