    • Animal handling: i.v./i.p. injection, tail vein catheter, anaesthesia, surgery
    • PET/SPECT: static and dynamic scanning, CT fusion
    • CT: in vivo scans +/- contrast agents, respiratory gating
    • MRI: in vivo scans +/- contrast agents, cardiac & respiratory gating
    • Ultrasound: hands-on scanning +/- contrast agents
    • Optical imaging: fluorescence, bioluminescence, photoacoustic
    • Multimodal Imaging: PET/CT, PET/MRI, SPECT/CT
