The PET Insert* for simultaneous high-field MR and PET imaging represents a culmination of Bruker Si detector innovations including unique continuous crystal technology with precise DOI detection, integration with SiPMs, and advanced electronics with full row and column readout. These innovations supply up to 0.7 mm resolution at Full Field Accuracy (FFA) and with 12% sensitivity that now extends to simultaneous PET/MR imaging with instruments up to 15.2 Tesla.
The PET insert is specifically designed for use with new and existing BioSpec high-field MR systems. This allows current BioSpec users to expand their system functionality to meet the growing demand for simultaneous PET/MR imaging in basic research and translational medicine. In the event that standalone PET imaging is desired, the insert can be easily retracted from the MR system and used at the Si-Connect Station provided.
The PET Insert offers the high-end capabilities of sequential systems without performance compromises. High resolution, high sensitivity and high quantification accuracy in parallel with any MRI method.
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.
