New applications including multi-modal PET/MR imaging using the Bruker ICON™ Compact High-Performance MRI system

Abstract

PET/MRI is an emerging field in medical research. We evaluated the potential of the ICON compact MRI system within a combined PET/MRI setup and provide various examples for in vivo PET/MRI studies. Application examples include cardiovascular disease, inflammation and arthritis and cancer biology in vivo. The unique attributes of this compact, high-performance MRI system – – with no external magnetic field and the possibility for placement anywhere in a biological lab – – will be discussed as a biological imaging tool, as well as a flexible instrument in a multi-modality imaging core facility.
