This project aims to develop a new intraoperative imaging method with ultra-small PET (Positron Emission Tomography) and Compton camera probe.
The developed low invasive intraoperative diagnosis will improve the prognosis after surgery and QOL (Quality of Life).
Proposed new intraoperative imaging method
Developed small gamma-ray probe
