Title: Flexible PET platform for clinical MRI systems

Speaker: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Volkmar Schulz

Abstract: Medical imaging plays a key role in the field of diagnostics, interventions, therapy planning and assessment of therapy success. The need to personalize medical imaging or improve it in terms of accuracy and cost-effectiveness is constantly growing. In recent years, the combination of clinical magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography (PET) has become increasingly important. In contrast to the currently used PET/computed tomography (CT) systems, PET/MRI offers not only improved soft tissue contrast and a lower amount of ionizing radiation, but also a wealth of MRI-specific information such as functional and spectroscopic data. However, the development of commercial whole-body PET/MRI systems has been guided by that of PET/CT, which determines the spatial resolution and system sensitivity of clinical PET systems. To overcome these limitations, there are several approaches that will be presented in this talk. In particular, we have developed a flexible MR-compatible PET platform that allows to transform clinical MRI systems temporally into hybrid PET-MRIs. Details of this platform and the systems we have developed will be presented in the talk.
