Greg Mitchell, in Simon Cherry’s lab, will be one of the presenters in Caliper Life Science’s “Cerenekov Luminescence Imaging” webinar.

Broadcast Date: Thusday, January 20, 2011

Time: 10:00 AM PST

A novel method in preclinical imaging that is gaining in popularity within the research community is radioisotope detection with in vivo optical imaging via Cerenkov emission. Monitoring radio-pharmaceuticals in the preclinical setting with the high sensitivity of an IVIS instrument is a low-cost, high throughput alternative to existing instrumentation in nuclear medicine. In addition, the IVIS can detect the presence of therapeutic isotopes which emit only the beta-minus particle, where detectors in nuclear medicine for non-invasive in vivo imaging of the beta-minus particles do not exist. In this webinar, the phenomenon of Cerenkov emission will be described and recent publications in preclinical optical imaging of radio-pharmaceuticals will be presented. The IVIS has been demonstrated to be the most comprehensive in vivo functional imaging instrument for preclinical research: imaging bioluminescence, fluorescence, and radio-pharmaceuticals.
