RatCAP Prototype  Miniature PET scanner allows whole brain imaging in awake rats for the first time.

By far the worlds smallest and lightest PET scanner, it is the only PET system able to be mounted on the head of a fully conscious lab rat, allowing for the first time functional images of the whole brain during the rats behavior. Research PET centers will be eager to acquire this unique tool, and pharma will be interested in using it in drug development, especially for neurological applications in which anesthesia can interfere with the results. Even universities without access to the full infrastructure of PET will see this as a low-cost entry into the growing field of PET imaging.
