We are pleased to announce the completion of the installation of our MR Solutions 7T Flexiscan PET-MRI. This state-of-the-art imaging system provides the flexibility to perform sequential PET-MRI, stand-alone PET and stand-alone MRI experiments on rats and mice.

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 can 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 PET-MRI imaging system.
