Tumor-Associated Macrophages Enhance Tumor Hypoxia and Aerobic Glycolysis

Tumor hypoxia and aerobic glycolysis are well-known resistance factors for anticancer therapies. Most tumour cells are subject to conditions in which oxygen is not readily available, known as tumour hypoxia, due to abnormal vasculature. Effective radiotherapy relies on the creation of reactive oxygen species, therefore hypoxic tumors are radiation resistant. Further, both chemotherapy and

SimPET: A Preclinical PET Insert for Simultaneous PET/MR Imaging

Simultaneous Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) provides a unique non-invasive opportunity to image both the functional and structural characteristics of biological systems. PET imaging shows high-sensitivity to dynamic metabolic and functional processes through tracking of biomarkers in-vivo but lacks the resolution to resolve detailed anatomy. MRI produces exceptional soft-tissue contrast

New Journal Article – Cell Proliferation Detected Using [18F]FLT PET/CT as an Early Marker of Abdominal Aortic Aaneurysm

Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a localized dilatation of the abdominal aorta which shows limited symptomology prior to rupture. Once rupture occurs though, the results may be catastrophic leading to intense pain, loss of consciousness, and possibly death. Detection often occurs incidentally or through routine screening, and surgical intervention is generally limited to large
