PETcoil brings positron emission tomography (PET) imaging into over 40,000 magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners worldwide.
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 few academic medical centers.
PETcoil’s portable PET scanner can be placed into any existing MRI scanner to perform simultaneous PET and MRI scans, allowing you to add PET imaging capability to your MRI systems. With PETcoil’s portable PET scanner, you can offer PET/MRI scans with a much smaller investment by leveraging existing MRI infrastructure.
