Wales Research and Diagnostic PET Imaging Centre
PETIC is a cyclotron- based production facility which provides radiopharmaceuticals for both diagnostic and research utilising both clinical and pre-clinical PETCT scanners. PETIC provides research opportunities across the Schools of Medicine, Bioscience, Chemistry, Pharmacy, Psychology and Optometry, in addition to All Wales Research Networks and GW4.
The provision of the pre-clinical PET facility will be particularly attractive to the pharmaceutical industry. PETIC also offers a clinical scanning facility able to provide scans with FDG (Oncology, Neurology), F Choline (Prostate Cancer), NaF (Bone Scan), Florbetapir (Amyloid Plaque in Alzheimer’s) and F DOPA (Dopamine system and Parkinson’s Disease). PETIC has plans to develop a neurological research focus and introduce scanning of GABA receptors, Glutamate receptors, microglial activation and Tau protein. In addition, PETIC offers novel radioisotopes such as Zirconium 89 and Yttrium 86 with which PETIC is able to label and image monoclonal antibodies.
