How do we make radiation useful?
Clinical
CT = multi-projection XRAY IMAGES
IMAGE INDICATIVE OF LUNG CANCER
Research
X-rays used to characterize elemental quantity in
cancerous and normal cells: Fe, Zn, Ca
 X-ray production – via particle accelerator
 Results have diagnostic potential

Detection of radioactive nuclides injected into body
Provide functional information of the organ
Glucose uptake
visualization
Tachnetium-99m :
140keV gamma rays
Clinical
At McMaster:
-Development of breast- and cardiac- dedicated PET cameras
-Development of simultaneous PET/MRI scanners for preclinical
and clinical application
Clinical
