Why is it important?

Our results show that the submillimeter small-animal MetisTM PET/CT system has the characteristics of high-resolution, high-sensitivity and excellent image quality and is suitable for rodent imaging-based research.


In order to better study the nature of the occurrence and development of clinical diseases, small animal PET/CT systems with high resolution and high sensitivity have been developed and continuously improved. We believe that the report of this study will be of interest to its readership.
