“Flexible PET (fxPET)”, a dual-head mobile DOI-TOF PET system with MR compatibility, is a newly developed device which enable us to examine the positron-emission tomography. In this first trial of the central nervous system (CNS), we tried to confirm the clinical feasibility of the fxPET with a 1.5T MRI scanner. The result of this study showed that fxPET have clinical feasibility in comparison with PET-CT. PET/MRI is an emerging modality. PET/MRI can provide us useful metabolic information to MRI images.
