The PET inserts are designed for simultaneous PET and MR imaging of mice and rats using BioSpec MR imaging products. It allows researchers to gain unique insight on molecular and functional processes as well as a multitude of macroscopic and chemical information within a living system at the same time.
PET/MR exceeds the growing demands on preclinical imaging methods, which are required in all areas of molecular and medical research, such as oncology, neuroscience, cardiology, theranostics, immunology and development of new nuclear molecular tracers.
All PET Inserts are based on the Bruker Si PET imaging platform that is designed for highest sensitivity, high spatial resolution and quantification accuracy across the entire FOV, highest count rates and full MRI compatibility without interferences between the hybrid modalities.

The PET Insert is operated by Paravision 360 with the trusted Paravision appearance and workflow allowing MRI users to followfamiliar MR imaging workflows and therefore start obtaining valuable PET/MR data almost immediately. The first system was installed in August 2016 in a 7 Tesla system atthe Katholieke Universiteit in Leuven, Belgium under the guidance of Christophe Deroose, Ph.D., Professor of Nuclear Medicine. Their initial imaging highlights the value of simultaneous PET/MR in studies involving structure/function in both tumor gross anatomy and tumor micro-environment. The potential of multi-parametric analysis, as well as simultaneous brain and cardiac imaging are also demonstrated.
