Imaging at the Speed of Light: Current and Future Innovations in PET Technology

Positron emission tomography (PET) allows for sensitive and quantitative measurement of physiology, metabolism and molecular targets noninvasively in the human body.  However, typical clinical PET scanners capture less than 1% of the available signal produced in the body.  PET scanners also are not currently capable of precisely determining the location at which a particular decay occurs. These limitations present opportunities for further innovation that ultimately will impact molecular imaging research and diagnostic imaging with PET.  This presentation focuses on 1) total-body PET imaging which greatly improves signal collection, allowing radiotracer kinetics to be assessed across the entire human body for the first time, and 2) the development of detector technologies that have a timing precision of ~ 30 picoseconds, enabling direct localization of radiotracer decays without tomographic reconstruction.

Biased: Uncovering the Hidden Prejudice that Shapes What We See, Think, and Do

Jennifer Eberhardt conducts research on race and inequality. Her work has revealed the startling extent to which racial imagery and judgments shape actions and outcomes in our criminal-justice system, neighborhoods, schools, and workplaces. Dr. Eberhardt not only highlights the negative impact of racial bias but offers direction on how to disrupt it.
