Within the H2020 EU project HYPMED, we have developed a PET insert that can be moved into a 1.5 T MRI Philips Ingenia turning this into a simultaneous MRI-PET device for breast cancer applications. The PET insert consists of two independent PET rings with a field of view of 28$$$\times$$$10 cm² and two dual-channel local receive coils. Each ring consists of 14$$$\times$$$2 detector blocks of which each features a three-layer LYSO crystal array with 1.3 mm pitch. We will present the first PET and MRI results of our system.
