At Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK), we’re not only changing the way we treat cancer, but also the way the world thinks about it. By working together and pushing forward with innovation and discovery, we’re driving excellence and improving outcomes.
For the 28th year, MSK has been named a top hospital for cancer by U.S. News & World Report. We are proud to be on Becker’s Healthcare list as one of the 150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare in 2018, as well as one of Glassdoor’s Employees’ Choice Best Place to Work for 2018. We’re treating cancer, one patient at a time. Join us and make a difference every day.
The Molecular Imaging Physics section in the Department of Medical Physics is primarily responsible for supporting Nuclear Medicine procedures and equipment in both the hospital and research settings. Our aim is to provide exceptional clinical support for the current practice of medicine and research that utilizes radioactive materials with gamma cameras and PET scanners for the diagnosis of cancer and allied diseases and tumor targeting radionuclides for the treatment of cancer. In addition, the section performs practical research aimed at the immediate translation of results into improved diagnostic and therapeutic performance and methodologies that facilitate the expansion of successful clinical programs.
The Molecular Imaging Physics section is one of the largest in the country consisting of 8 faculty and 3 non-faculty members that currently supports 13 PET/CT scanners and one PET/MR, as well as 3 SPECT/CTs, 2 regular gamma cameras and a whole-body counter. Molecular imaging activities occur at the main campus, but also at a number of regional locations including New Jersey, Westchester and Long Island. We also provide support for many nuclear imaging research protocols to evaluate new radiotracers, some of which are developed in house by the radiochemistry service.
