Simon Cherry Receives Grant and Publishes New Edition of Classic Book

The 4th edition of Simon Cherry’s textbook, Physics in Nuclear Medicine, has just been published by Elsevier.  The new edition is in color, has much new content and also includes access to a website with animations and calculational tools.  This book is used around the world for graduate level medical physics and biomedical engineering courses, as well as for radiology and nuclear medicine residency programs.

Prof. Cherry also received two NIH Shared Instrumentation Grants totaling $1M to purchase new imaging equipment for CMGI.  With this funding CMGI will be adding an XRadia microCT biospecimen scanner that can acquire tomographic x-ray imaging of tissue samples down to 1 micron resolution, and a Perkin Elmer IVIS Spectrum system for in vivo fluorescence and bioluminescence imaging.
