UC Davis researchers get $15.5M to build new generation of whole-body scanner
Sacramento Business Journal

A research team at University of California Davis has received a five-year, $15.5 million grant to build an imaging device that combines two technologies to scan the whole body at once while reducing time and radiation exposure. The scanner could drop the radiation dose by a factor of 40 or decrease scanning time from 20 minutes to 30 seconds. Or do a combination that drops both the dose and the time by lesser amounts.
