One of the strongest MR research scanners worldwide was inaugurated February 24th at the Danish Research Center for Magnetic Resonance (DRCMR) located at Copenhagen University Hospital Hvidovre, Denmark. The new scanner operates at no less than 7 tesla magnetic field strength which corresponds to roughly 140.000 times the earth magnetic field. The purchase of this incredible MR system from Philips Healthcare was made possible after very generous donations from the John and Birthe Meyer Foundation and the Danish Council for Research and Innovation.

[11C]Cimbi-36 launced at Imanova in London as new imaging biomarker to investigate the serotonin system in psychiatric illness
Feb 23rd, Imanova, Centre for Imaging Sciences, London announced completion of the implementation of [11C]Cimbi-36 as a novel imaging biomarker for use in clinical and preclinical PET imaging studies.
For more details, please read the official press release.
Here we will share with you how Cimbi has completed a set of studies aimed at systematically characterizing a PET radioligand known as [11C]SB207145, which binds to the serotonin type 4 receptor (5-HT4R). From the determination of how to quantify the signal from [11C]SB207145 PET scans to initial evidence that it may also represent a proxy for inter-individual differences in brain serotonin levels, the collaborative effort across research groups within Cimbi underscore its abilities to move biomedical research forward.
