The construction of hybrid scanners that allow simultaneous MRI and PET required the development of a new type of MR-compatible PET detector, which was first realized for studying small animals.  ...  Recently, the first prototypes of hybrid scanners allowing simultaneous MR-PET for brain studies have been developed and installed in two centers in both Germany and the USA.  ...  The near future of MR-PET While the prototypes of the 3TMR-BrainPET are being tested, Siemens is developing a wholebody 3TMR-PET hybrid scanner allowing for simultaneous bimodal imaging.  ...
