Sherbrooke researchers pave the way for ultrahigh-resolution PET imaging

A research team led by Roger Lecomte at the Université de Sherbrooke has developed an ultrahigh-resolution (UHR) brain PET scanner, enabling effective visualization and understanding of biological processes taking place in small cerebral structures. The system’s high spatial resolution allows for the identification and analysis of brain regions that were previously difficult to distinguish, shedding light on their involvement in conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, depressive disorders, visual attention disorders, and tinnitus.
