“Molecular Imaging : Finding function in form”


Molecular Imaging provides us with a means of visualising biological mechanisms within the human body non-invasively.  Ranging from glucose metabolism to amyloid plaque burden, Molecular Imaging is used extensively in a range of disease etiologies, treatment planning  and monitoring therapy response. This presentation provides an overview of the physics, chemistry and biology of Molecular Imaging.

 

Associate Professor Graeme O’Keefe is a Medical Physicist at the Department of Molecular Imaging and Therapy at Austin Health and the School of Cancer Medicine at Latrobe University. He has been involved with Positron Emission tomography since its introduction to Australia in 1992. His interests include quantitative PET, kinetic modelling and translational molecular imaging research.
