We are pleased to announce the installation of our new MR Solutions Flexiscan benchtop preclinical; 7T PET-MRI imaging system.
This state-of-the-art imaging system provides the flexibility to perform experiments on rats and mice in three configurations:.stand-alon PET, stand-alone MRI or sequential PET-MRI. The core of the MRI component is a 7T cryogen free superconducting magnet with a 17cm bore. The cryogen free magnet imparts a small footprint and low mass to the MRI system, ensuring that it could be installed in our existing imaging facility with little or no renovation. At the core of the PET component are two rings of dual layer silicon photomultiplier (lutetium-yttrium oxyorthosilicate) detectors forming a compact and robust PET imaging system that can be operated as a stand-alone PET imaging system or attached to the face of the MRI to operate as a sequenctial PET-MRI imaging system. This new system therefore provides users the flexibility to conducte MR, PET or PET-MR experiments
