Biograph mMR
 
From Siemens Medical Systems;
www.healthcare.siemens.com/magnetic-resonance-imaging/mr-pet-scanner/biograph-mmr FDA cleared and CE Mark 2011.
The Biograph mMR has a fully-integrated design for simultaneous PET/MRI imaging. The dedicated hardware includes solid-state, avalanche photodiode PET detector and adapted, PET-compatible MR coils.
The possibility of truly simultaneous operation allows the acquisition of several magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) sequences during the positron emission tomography (PET) scan, without increasing the examination time.
