Positron Emission Tomography Core

Welcome to the PET Imaging Core Facility

The UNMC PET Imaging Core Facility is opening in 2022 with strong support from the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and the Nebraska Research Initiative. The core is equipped with a state-of-the-art positron emission tomography (PET) scanner for rodent models with single digit microcurie level sensitivity. The PET imager and accessory equipment make it possible for investigators to conduct high level live biodistribution and kinetic studies for a wide array of scientific applications. The work of the core is open to all investigators within the University of Nebraska system as well as non-university users. The core and its personnel are here to support investigators in their research goals, which includes providing training on core facilities and safety measures. To inquire about the services provided by the core, please contact
Dr. Bhavesh Kevadiya or dedicated core personnel.

The UNMC PET Imaging Core Facility exists to provide investigators with expertise and guidance for radiolabeled imaging experiments for rodents. We also provide investigators with access to dedicated equipment, post-processing software, and dedicated personnel at UNMC. The data acquired through the PET core will hopefully aid in the advancement of investigator publications, grants, and overall clinical research efforts.
