PET Insert Technical Details

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.


  • BioSpec 70/30 USR, BioSpec 94/30 USR, and BioSpec 47/40 USR systems
  • Inserted in less than 5 minutes
  • Supplied with Si-Connect Station for standalone PET imaging and easy insertion into the magnet

PET Module

  • Up to 0.7 mm resolution with Full Field of View Accuracy (FFA) and 12% sensitivity. FFA means high resolution and high quantification across the entire field of view.
  • Continuous crystals, full row and column readout, and DOI detection
  • SiPM (silicon photomultipliers) design compatible with high-field MR
  • Large FOV for total body dynamic imaging
