Sequential imaging from rodents to large animals of PET/MR & PET/CT

The benchtop PET CLIP-ON is designed for sequential multimodality imaging in combination with MR Solutions CT and MRI (up to 9.4T). The PET module can also be operated as a stand alone Benchtop PET system. The PET Clip-on has a revolutionary modular design allowing researchers to select their transaxial field of view (tFOV) and axial field of view (aFOV) . The system has the capacity to scan whole body subjects ranging from rodents to large animals (i.e. monkeys, rabbits). The PET module is detachable from the MRI and can be coupled to the CT or to its own gantry benchtop for standalone operation. This dramatically improves the workflow of the laboratory and limits the cost as only one PET module is required for PET/CT and PET/MR imaging.

  • Detachable from the MR or/and the CT
  • Benchtop PET design for standalone PET imaging
  • MR compatible up to 9.4T.
  • Operate the PET and the MRI systems simultaneously on a side by side configuration. This capability increases the workflow of the laboratory.

The benchtop PET CLIP-ON 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 150 mm by having up to 3 PET rings.

The Technology

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
  • robustness
  • compactness
  • high-temperature stability
  • light over-exposure


Benefits of Simultaneous PET/MRI

PET/MRI imaging offers a variety of benefits specifically, but not limited to cardiovascular, neurobiology and cancer researchers:

  • 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
