On Monday, May 20th, students of IB Physics and HL Chemistry went to visit CUDIM  (Uruguayan Center of Molecular Imaging). There, radiopharmaceuticals are produced and then used as a diagnostic tool in PET (positron emission tomography) scans. The students received an introductory talk where the main features of the center were explained, and then were able to go to the labs to get a closer look at some impressive devices used in the process.

It was an amazing oportunity for the students to bring down to earth and learn about specific applications of some theorical and abstract concepts worked in the course, and at the same time get in touch with one of the most cutting edge scientific facilities of out country.
