The Signa PET/MR scanner manifactured by GE will be housed in a dedicated neuroimaging unit in the basemaent of the Centre for Brain Health DMCBH building.

The SIGNA™ PET/MR is a fully integrated 3T PET/MR system built with pioneering Time-of-Flight (TOF) technology and a 3.0T MR. Its impressive quantitative accuracy and high count rate combined with innovative Q.Clear reconstruction delivers 2x improvement in image quality.

The system is fully capable of simoltaneous PET/MR in the same field of view, at the same time and presented as co-localized databases. FMRI functionality is also available. The SIGNA PET/MR comes standard with a package of pulse sequences and applications for exceptional 3.0T MR imaging performance.

Key features of the system are:

  • 3.0T MR system
  • Comprehensive MR imaging capabilitiy
  • PET charecterized RF coils
  • 50cm MR FOV
  • Multinuclear MR spectroscopy supportedSiPM TOF PET detector technology
  • 5cm Axial PET FOV
  • 21.0 kcps/Mbq sensitivity
  • <400 psec timing resolution
  • TOF enhanced attenuation correction
  • Full suite of pulse sequences and applications
