UC Davis Researchers Win Grant that Could Help Fight Cancer

Experts in biomedical engineering and radiology have been awarded $15.5 million from the National Institutes of Health to build a PET scanner that could allow physicians to see inside the entire human body at once. Such a technology could have major implications for how cancer and other diseases are diagnosed and treated because it would provide a whole picture of the body, lower the radiation dose received by patients, and even produce clearer images.
