Reaching sub-millimeter limits in spatial resolution and improved temporal resolution, simultaneous PET/MRI using a pre-clinical MR compatible PET insert enables new discoveries in science and medicine. We recently evaluated a versatile MR compatible small animal PET insert in collaboration with Cubresa. Presented here are the first simultaneous images obtained using both imaging modes within our clinical 3T MRI.
