Welcome to the Division of Nuclear Medicine
at the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology
Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, Missouri
Positron emission tomography (PET) was developed at the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology in the early 1970s. As the first institution to construct a useable PET scanner, we have built a strong legacy of PET imaging expertise. In fact, our PET specialists have more than 150 years of collective experience. More than 3500 comprehensive PET exams are performed here annually.
