Integrated 3D MR-PET imaging system

eagle-i ID


Resource Type

  1. Dual MRI-PET scanner


  1. Resource Description
    "The BrainPET is a 3D dedicated-brain scanner designed to operate inside the bore of the Siemens Medical MAGNETOM Trio, a TIM system 3T MR scanner (see Bay 8: 3T MR-PET laboratory, above) . The combined MR-PET scanner is the first system capable of simultaneously imaging the human brain in one bed position. The PET system consists of the following major components: PET gantry with 32 detector cassettes, gantry handling device with cable handling function, cooling system, acquisition electronics module, processing reconstruction station and power supply cabinet. The gantry physical ID and OD are 36 cm and 60 cm, respectively. The axial FOV is 19.25 cm and the transaxial FOV is ~30 cm. Each of the 32 PET detector modules consists of six 12×12 LSO crystal arrays read out by a 3×3 array of APDs (Hamamatsu 8664-55, Japan). The individual crystal size is 2.5×2.5×20 mm3. The APD signals are processed and shaped by an on-board charge-sensitive preamplifiers and pole-zero circuit."
