The INM provides a comprehensive research and clinical PET/MR, PET/CT, SPECT/CT and general nuclear medicine imaging and bone densitometry service to UCLH Trust, the London PCTs and other Trust within the UK.
We have an extensive and internationally recognised research programme with University College London and other external collaborators. We commissioned the first PET/MR in this country in March 2012 in the MacMillan Cancer Centre. Currently, a broad range of research studies and trials are underway utilizing advanced MR and PET acquisition techniques, targeting important diseases in Neurology, Cardiology, Oncology and Immunity/Inflammation. A clinical service runs concurrently with the research PETMR service.
In addition to the PETMR service, there is a large and varied clinical & research workload in the rest of the department, provided by a wide range of state of the art equipment including two dedicated PET/CT systems (64 slice and 16 slice), three SPECT/CT systems. Two of these have full diagnostic CT capability, as well as a novel CZT based D-SPECT dedicated cardiac SPECT system.
