New Breakthrough PET/MR 3T System from Bruker

The latest breakthrough in PET detector technology, together with the proven superior soft tissue contrast of translational field strength MRI, are now combined in one compact, easy to use instrument.

Featuring homogeneous, constant PET resolution over the wholefield of view, a newly developed 3T cryogen-free magnet and amotorized animal transport system, the PET/MR 3T simplifies your workflow and supports a broad spectrum of application fields, such as oncology, functional and anatomical neuroimaging, orthopedics, cardiac imaging and stroke models.

Features

  • Sharp PET images with new PET Silicon PM detectors deliver consistent and reproducible quantification within the entire FOV, regardless of object size and position
  • Patented continuous LYSO crystals, unrestrained by discrete layers, andSilicon position sensitive photomultiplierswith advanced depth-of-interaction (DOI)detection enable precise 3D localization of events. This eliminates the resolution degradation when moving out of thecenter of the PET Field-of-View (FOV)
  • No shielding required: PET technology is fully compatible with high magnetic fieldstrength; spatial resolution and energy resolution are unchanged within themagnetic field
  • Exceptional count rate performance combinedwith 12% sensitivity for dynamic and gated studies for high temporal resolution and superior image quality
  • Superior MRI magnet technology ensures the magnet remains on field during power outage or cold water failure for up to 4 hours
  • Best in class homogeneity of ±0.1 ppm for a 50 mm DSV due to solid magnet design
  • MRI sequence portfolio of more than 1000 sequence variations, including wireless cardiac imaging using navigator based IntraGate methods with a choice of cartesianor radial readout, as well as short echo time imaging, such as UTE and ZTE
  • Widest range of RF-coils (~30) for mice and rats available, including coils for head, brain, cardiac, body, and multi-purpose applications
  • Over 100 validated and ready to use in vivo protocols and scan programs for mice and rats
