An innovative high rate preclinical PET/MR detector towards dynamic multimodal imaging

SAFIR (Small Animal Fast Insert for mRi) is an innovative, high rate PET detector insert for MRI to be used for quantitative dynamic small animal imaging inside the bore of a commercial 7T MRI preclinical scanner (Bruker 70/30, at the University Zurich, Institute of Pharmacology and Toxicology. The project targets an unprecedented temporal resolution (about 5 seconds) and truly simultaneous PET/MR acquisition.
