Analytical Instrumentation in the QC of Pet Radiopharmaceuticals
The PET Center at North Carolina Baptist Hospital-Bowman Gray School of Medicine has been in operation since January of 1992. It was designed and equipped to conveniently and efficiently accommodate both the clinical and developmental research requirements of a PET Center. The facility is comprised of approximately 12, 000 sq. ft. of space which includes the cyclotron, scanning/patient area, radiochemistry/radiopharmacy, chemistry, blood lab, scan reading room and office area. The laboratory/research area includes 3255 sq. ft. of the available space, and is used for production, quality control, blood analysis and research.
