PET/MR

The Siemens Biograph mMR PET/MR system combines 3T MR with simultaneous PET imaging.

• Unique mMR block detector architecture includes integrated cooling features to provide optimal PET performance, as well as specialized shielding to virtually eliminate magnetic field interference in the PET data processing chain.

• Attenuation correction helps improve the consistency of PET data results. This information is collected from MR data during the concurrent exam. Relevant components have been reengineered with low attenuation materials, e.g. the PET-compatible Tim coils and the mMR Tim Table.

• Gradient strength 45mT/m and slew rate 200 T/m/s.

 

The Biograph mMR scanner is available from 8:00 AM-4:00 PM Monday through Friday. To check availability of the PET/MR scanner, please click here.
