MIPS Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford

ICMIC@Stanford 2010 - 2015

Specialized Resources

Frederick Chin

Specialized Resource 1
Chemistry/Radiochemistry Resource
Frederick T. Chin, PhD
Resource Director

This resource is designed to help ICMIC@Stanford investigators with their needs for radiochemistry and synthetic organic chemistry. Since the design and utilization of chemistry probes is at the core of molecular imaging it is important that ICMIC@Stanford investigators have available routinely utilized PET tracers (e.g., FDG, FHBG, FIAU, FLT) as well as the ability to help investigators with custom synthesis. Support for Iodinations for PET and SPECT tracers is also provided. Furthermore, because the evolving needs of investigators may require totally new chemistry; this resource will also help researchers with synthetic organic chemistry. This resource is utilized by all Research Projects. As more investigators start to use microPET we expect this resource will be further utilized.

Specialized Resource 2
Small Animal Imaging Resource
Craig Levin, PhD
Resource Director

This resource provides access to all the small animal imaging instruments used by all current and future ICMIC@Stanford investigators. The ability to use a multimodality imaging approach to solve a biological problem of interest with bioluminescene and fluorescence optical imaging, small animal computed tomography (microCT), micro positron emission tomography (microPET), micro single photon emission computed tomography (microSPECT), digital whole body autoradiography (DWBA), small animal high-resolution ultrasound, and small animal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are all key components of this resource. The ability to utilize multimodality small animal imaging instruments and to have expertise available to evolve these technologies and their uses are a key feature of this important resource. All Research Projects will utilize this resource.


Specialized Resource 3
Imaging Quantitation and Analysis Resource
Frezghi Habte, PhD
Resource Director

This resource is designed to help ICMIC@Stanford investigators understand, quantitate, mathematically model, statistically analyze, and visualize their multimodality imaging data. We feel it is critical that molecular imaging move forward with not only the ability to obtain images but to rigorously quantitate the obtained data. This resource will help to make sure that investigators are confident in understanding and reporting the data obtained. This resource will be utilized by all Research Projects.
