A resistive heater that is compatible with MR, CT, SPECT and PET imaging has been produced from a commercially available carbon-fibre sheet. Adequacy of temperature maintenance and insensitivity of MR and CT imaging to the presence and use of the heater is shown. Multimodal MR-CT-PET-SPECT imaging of the lower abdomen is demonstrated in vivo in the physiologically maintained and viable anaesthetised mouse.
