As the world leader in both MRI and PET, Siemens possesses the engineering expertise to fully integrate the two.
We've designed the first PET detectors that allow the integration of whole-body MR and PET - without compromising the performance of either modality.
Our unique mMR block detector architecture includes integrated cooling features to provide optimal PET performance, as well as specialized shielding to virtually eliminate magnetic field interference in the PET data processing chain.
Attenuation correction helps improve the consistency of PET data results. This information is collected from MR data during the concurrent exam. Relevant components have been reengineered with low attenuation materials, e.g. the PET-compatible Tim coils and the mMR Tim Table.
For Biograph mMR*, we've optimized the design and incorporated low-attenuation materials into the Tim mMR coils to minimize attenuation of the PET signals. The result is an outstanding 3T MRI performance and a high-resolution PET exam.

*The Biograph mMR system is pending 510(k) review by the U.S. FDA and requires a Declaration of Conformity according to MDD. It is not commercially available in all countries.
