Mediso, Tübingen partner on preclinical PET/MRI

Nuclear imaging firm Mediso Medical Imaging Systems and the University of Tübingen have entered into a collaboration to develop a whole-body preclinical PET insert based on silicon photomultiplier sensor technology.

The system can be inserted into a high-field (7-tesla) preclinical MRI system to enable simultaneous PET/MR imaging. The new sensor technology allows the PET ring to move inside a high-field MRI unit and acquire PET data during MRI exams simultaneously, while minimizing any compromise on PET sensitivity and overall image quality, according to the university.

The new detector will debut as an insert but it will replace the conventional PET detectors in the company's nanoScan products.
