Dr. Baowei Fei’s work on MR/PET is highlighted as a featured innovation at the Office of Technology Transfer (OTT) at Emory University

Magnetic resonance imaging (MR) shows details about the soft tissues of the body, such as every curve and indentation in the brain, while positron emission tomography (PET) records processes, such as how much energy is being used or how much blood is flowing into a region. When these imaging techniques were combined in the same scanner a few years ago, a real challenge since the MRI’s strong magnetic field and the PET’s detector and electronics tend to interfere with each other scientists started thinking about the potential wealth of information that could be provided.
