Simultaneous & sequential acquisition of PET & MR – MRS-PETTM
The new MRS-PET for small animal imaging offers a major breakthrough in high performance functional imaging technology. Our revolutionary MRS-PET preclinical PET/MR system provides superior soft tissue contrast and molecular imaging capability.
MRS-PET, coupled with the MRS cryogen free MRI system, is the first totally modular commercial preclinical system for simultaneous multi-modality imaging.
Researchers have the choice of:
- Independent use of their MRI system.
- PET imaging using the MRS-PET as a stand alone device on a bench.
- Simultaneous acquisition of PET and MRI data by inserting the MRS-PET inside the MRI magnet.
- Sequential PET/MR imaging by clipping the MRS-PET in front of the bore of the MRS-MRI. Animal translates automatically from one modality to the other on the same axis.
- Operate the PET and the MRI systems simultaneously on a side by side configuration. This capability increases the workflow of the laboratory.
The MRS-PET is available in different configurations with different trans-axial field of views, allowing imaging from mice to NHP. The axial field of view can be extended up to 135 mm by having up to 3 PET rings.
- Standalone PET operation possible
- Compact and light
- Portable assembly with easy clip-on/clip-off
- Easy fit to MRS 3000 and MRS 7000 MRI
- Superior soft tissue contrast and molecular imaging capability for great visualization, quantification and translational studies
- Enables Multi-modality imaging

The MRS-PET implements the latest technology in Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPM). These SiPM have performance characteristics similar to a conventional PMT, while benefiting from the practical advantages of solid-state technology:
- low operating voltage
- high-temperature stability
- light over-exposure
- Improved image registration and fusion enables more accurate anatomical localization of PET findings
- Lower radiation dose in whole-body imaging compared with PET/CT
- Shorter overall imaging times, enables higher throughput
- Simultaneously view rapidly changing physiological and pathological processes
