Established in 1975 to study human brain function, the Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Center at the University of Pennsylvania was one of the first PET research facilities in the country. The PET Center continues to lead in biomedical research today, facilitating basic and clinical research across multiple disciplines including: Cardiology, Neurology, Oncology, Psychiatry
Advances in PET technology have expanded PET/CT into clinical practice, particularly in oncology. The PET/CT Imaging Facility performs more than 5,000 clinical PET/CT exams each year
The utilization of PET imaging continues to evolve and may be in the forefront of personalized medicine because of its ability to visualize, characterize and measure biological processes.
