The new microPET Center at the Department of Radiation Oncology is designed to provide radiation services to all researchers at the Siteman Cancer Center and Washington University Medical Center. The microRT is a machine that focuses radiation in a very small beam to target tiny tumors, as small as 2 mm wide, without irradiating nearby tissues. Ongoing efforts of the center include implementation of imaging and positioning systems to conduct small animal studies that can potentially advance human cancer treatment.
