PET imaging for your MRI system
Simultaneous PET/MRI has been shown to provide substantial clinical
benefits. Unfortunately, the cost of purchasing and installing an integrated
PET/MRI scanner is unaffordable for most healthcare institutions. Even
though the technology has been commercially available since around 2011,
the high cost has limited the install base of integrated PET/MRI systems to a
relatively few number of academic medical centers.
PETcoil’s patented portable PET scanner can be placed into any existing MRI
scanner to perform simultaneous PET and MRI scans.
Our first product, a PETcoil for the head, allows hospitals to add PET imaging capability to neurological and/or head/neck MRI studies.

Use existing MRI infrastructure to cost-effectively achieve simultaneous PET/MRI.
Simultaneously acquiring MRI and PET scans reduces overall scan time and improves comfort for patients needing both scans.
