The construction of a simultaneous PET/MRI scanner affords careful design to avoid disadvantageous interference between both imaging modalities. In this work we focus on the housing of the PET detector. The primary function of the housing is to encapsulate and shield the detector electronics and it should provide a reliable mechanical support. High conductive materials, e.g. copper, show excellent radio frequency (RF) shielding properties, but have negative impact on the MRI image quality due… CONTINUE READING
