Pre-PET Headgear (Positron Emission Tomography)
In 1961, chemists at brookhavenlab studied how to detect small brain tumors by analyzing the decay of radioactive material injected into the patient’s bloodstream and preferentially absorbed by the tumor. To help them, BNL’s Instrumentation Division built different arrays of detectors, and this circular type proved best. In the 1970’s, BNL helped reconstruct the raw data received by the detectors into an image of the working brain. This breakthrough led to more practical devices for imaging areas of the brain: today’s PET machines. Today, Brookhaven is a leader in addiction research. BNL scientists use PET technology to study major areas of medical research including, drug and alcohol addiction; the development of a new strategy for addiction treatment; obesity and eating disorders; attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD); aging and neurodegenerative disorders.

Randolph Field, TX. Cpl. Charles F. Morris of Bristow, OK, an assistant instructor of aviation medical examiners at the US Air Force School of Aviation Medicine, is just all eyes these days. These two giant specimens are used in classes to teach the fundamental actions of the muscles used by the eyes and they even light up in real life fashion. Moved by two small motors, the large-sized eyes also enable large groups to see its actions in classroom discussions, and are another of the instruments developed by aero medical researchers in the continuing program of aviation medicine.

In this computer generated photograph, created from a cross section of Saturn’s rings by Voyager 2 photopolarimeter’s star occulation, the Encke Division in the outer A-ring. Clearly shown is the central ringlet, also observed by the imaging cameras. Creator: NASA/Ames Research Center, date: 8/25/1981.
