In the integrated MRI-PET system, the coupling of RF noise between electronics in the PET system and RF coil of the MRI system, and frequency shifting of RF coil can be main problems that can deteriorate MR image quality. In this study, we propose an MRI-PET fusion system, which can simultaneously acquire MRI and PET images by using an add-on/off type PET insert, and a gold-mesh tape shield is used to improve the MR image quality.
