Abstract:A clinical SPECT insert for a commercial MRI scanner has been developed within the INSERT project, allowing simultaneous SPECT/MRI studies of the human brain. Here we present preliminary experimental results. The reconstructed resolution was 6-11 mm and the sensitivity 280-440 s -1 /MBq. The INSERT is the first clinical SPECT prototype for simultaneous SPECT/MRI.
