Title: HYBRID TOF-PET/MRI TRANSCEIVER COIL
Abstract:
The present invention relates to the dedicated hybrid TOF-PET/MRI transceiver coil, comprising: MRI coils in a form of complex shape wire antennas, electronic circuit module allowing for transmitting MRI radiofrequency pulse, and receiving response in a form of magnetic resonance signal, PET detectors arranged longitudinally, fixed permanently to the MRI coils system mechanical support, an electronic signal processing unit, wherein the PET detectors are in a form of plastic scintillating strip modules equipped with photoelectric converter units at both ends to convert a light signals from the scintillating module to electrical signals and composed of non-magnetic materials.
