Research at Mass General
The Massachusetts General Hospital Gordon PET Core provides a full range of technical and professional services that include:
The Core has synthesized over 20 compounds for clinical evaluation and routine use for neurology, cardiology and oncology. In addition, it has pioneered the use of 18F Tau imaging agents for neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease and traumatic brain injuries.
The PET Core Facility provides the required facilities and personnel on a per study basis to allow investigators to use PET without requiring them to acquire the needed special expertise and equipment.
Investigators from the academic community, research laboratories and industry are welcome to use the PET Core services. Research services are accessed through contact with the professional staff leading to formalization of a research plan and subsequent review by the Scientific Management Committee. Clinical services are accessed by direct arrangement with the medical staff of the radiology department.
To access the core, please contact Ramsey El Fakhri at 617-724-7212 or by email at RELFAKHRI@mgh.harvard.edu
The PET Core has mechanisms available for pilot studies.
