Item Summary for PHIILIPS INGENUITY TF PET/MR

Undergoing a PET-MR examination
Prof. Osman Ratib: "This new device, which is the first one in Europe and the second one in the world, was created by Philips Healthcare and it is the first time--two whole body scanners-- an MRI scanner and a PET scanner are in a single device. Traditionally, these two machines could not co-exist in the same room given that with the MRI creates a magnetic field that interferes and creates artifacts on PET images.

Magnetic resonance/positron emission tomography (MR/PET) is the newest imaging modality falling within the category of hybrid imaging. It sits at the crossroads of successful tradition and innovation. It is traditional in that it combines anatomical and functional molecular imaging from two potent imaging modalities; at the same time it is innovative, in that it combines the full potential of anatomic and multiparametric imaging of MRI with the molecular information of PET.

We are fortunate at Case Western Reserve University and University Hospitals Case Medical Center to have one of the first MR/PET units in the Global Advanced Imaging Innovation Center. It is also one of the first units to be placed in a predominantly clinical environment — our new Seidman Cancer Center — for the benefit of our patients. MR/PET offers multiple advantages: It can perform whole body imaging with MR’s inherent quality of superb soft tissue contrast. It also allows for radiation reduction as compared to computed tomography (CT). As a single integrated unit, MR/PET provides the ease of a simplified workflow while maintaining the integrity of both state-of-the-art components MR and PET.

Besides whole body imaging, MR/PET can achieve focused organ-based MR imaging with specific detail to abnormal areas. Thus, MR/PET provides comprehensive information in a number of clinical applications. Certainly, oncologic applications come to the fore in many body areas and specific neoplasms, including breast, rectum and prostate cancer, GYN malignancies, head and neck, soft tissue and CNS tumors.

Of particular interest is MR/PET in pediatric patients, since radiation exposure is reduced compared to PET/CT, as the CT part is obviated. Clinical areas of interest outside oncology are cardiovascular imaging, particularly atheromatous plaques and cardiac function, and neurologic applications, such as degenerative diseases, multiple sclerosis, dementia, Alzheimer’s disease and epilepsy.
