IMAGING INNOVATIONS & TECHNOLOGY
3-D ANATOMIC MODELING Image data from patient CT or MR scans are used to build high-quality 3-D models of specific anatomical areas to guide surgical planning.
C-11 CHOLINE PET/CT Mayo Clinic was the first U.S. institution approved to manufacture and administer C-11 choline injections to perform choline PET/CT, which can help identify recurrent prostate cancer.
COMPACT 3T MRI SCANNER Mayo Clinic is home to the world’s first Compact 3T MRI scanner. Its novel technology has the promise to expand patient access to much-needed MRI exams around the world.
MOLECULAR BREAST IMAGING Mayo Clinic developed and is among the first to offer patients functional imaging for breast cancer using a specially designed gamma camera.
ONCOLOGIC ABLATION Spine Ablation and MR-guided Focused Ultrasound Ablation are two of the many specialized ablation procedures offered by Mayo Clinic radiologists in the treatment of tumors. PET/MRI Mayo Clinic was one of the first institutions to install a PET/MRI scanner with new PET detector technology. PET/MRI will enhance diagnostic capability for select clinical indications
PROTON BEAM THERAPY
Through its Proton Beam Therapy Program, Mayo brings a new capability in radiotherapy to people who can benefit from highly targeted precision beam therapy. Intensity-modulated proton beam therapy with pencil beam scanning, the latest form of proton beam therapy, allows Mayo radiation oncologists to destroy cancer while sparing healthy tissue.
