"Help us test the performance of the world's first full-body EXPLORER scanner"
Age: 18-100
Healthy Volunteers: Yes
Keywords: PET scan, CT scan, medical scanner, imaging study
Type: Device Study
45 Participants
We're inviting healthy volunteers to take part in an imaging research study. The purpose of this study is to test the performance of a new experimental medical scanner.

The scanner, called EXPLORER, is the first total-body PET/CT medical scanner that is able to scan the entire human body and its organs at once. It is 40 times more efficient and has the potential to make a big impact in medical care and research.

The EXPLORER scanner is the brainchild of UC Davis Health scientists envisioned 13 years ago as a scanner that could capture images quicker, better, or with less radiation than current scanners

PET/CT scanning is a very safe medical imaging technique that tracks and maps out the movement of tiny amounts of radioactively-tagged sugars after injection in a body. Across the world millions of PET scans happen in patients each year.
This study requires

This study has three study groups. You can choose a specific group until recruitment for a group is completed. Depending on the study group you will participate in:

  • Up to four visits
  • EXPLORER PET/CT, CT and MRI imaging
  • The first visit will inform you of study details and determine your eligibility.
