About Us
Molecular Imaging and Therapeutics

The Division of Molecular Imaging and Therapeutics has an expert team that performs all of the diagnostic and therapeutic nuclear medicine procedures. Additionally, Cardiology faculty members interpret 50% of the cardiac imaging studies. Physicists and radiopharmacists are involved in clinical and research operations. We operate an in-house radiopharmacy. Our faculty members are heavily involved in the training of diagnostic and interventional radiology residents as well as cardiology fellows.

The Molecular Imaging and Therapeutics faculty members are also involved in research and scholarship, and are active members in national professional societies such as SNMMI, RSNA, and ACR. The faculty has close collaborations with physicians and scientists across UNC School of Medicine and Lineberger Cancer Center and has been involved with many funded projects and clinical trials.

About our Program

UNC Molecular Imaging and Therapeutics is a growing group of talented personnel passionate about improving precision medicine through skilled clinical reads, high-value interactions with clinical colleagues, cutting-edge technologies, and a research mission leveraging theranostics and artificial intelligence. They achieve these objectives through vertical integration: discovering new diagnostic and therapeutic agents in the UNC Biomedical Research Imaging Center (BRIC), bringing new agents to the clinic, developing expertise in their use, and employing advanced quantitative methods, including AI, to explore predictive and prognostic biomarkers.
