An MRI-compatible PET insert for whole body studies in rodents at high functional and anatomical resolution

Abstract

The feasibility of performing high-resolution PET and high-field MRI simultaneously in rodents has been previously demonstrated in small-scale systems capable of imaging the rat brain and mouse. We are nearing completion of a larger scale PET system which will accommodate the whole rat and perform at 9.4 T with <2 mm PET resolution. The PET insert has… (More)
