Multi-modality imaging is becoming a trend in developing new generation in vivo imaging techniques. Fluorescence tomography (FT) is becoming an important molecular imaging tool in recent years. It has been shown that the anatomical information provided by MRI can be used to improve the quantitative accuracy of FT. However, most of the current FT system design utilizes CCD as the detector, which is incompatible with MRI. To be able to build a hybrid MRI-FDOT system, it requires new hardware compatible with each other. In this work, a development toward an MR compatible fluorescence tomography system is presented.
