Compact PET or CT
Sedecal offers their Compact PET or Compact CT systems as an alternative to the SuperArgus PET/CT. The Compact PET system incorporates the same state-of-the-art detectors and electronics as the SuperArgus systems. The compact systems have a bore size of 55mm making it ideal for mouse imaging. There is a common bed to transport the animal between imaging systems if the researcher is looking to coregister the images.
The core of the compact scanner is the unique phoswich PET detector technology, which provides true depth-of-interaction (tDOI), providing resolution (≤1.0mm) uniformity across the entire field of view. These detectors are also some of the most sensitive (11% at 100-700keV), allowing for real-time imaging (up to 2.5msec frame rate if desired).
The Compact PET system includes 32 tDOI phoswich detectors, configured in 4 rings, with an axial field of view of 45mm, and a trans-axial field of view of 100mm. The Compact CT system has the same axial and trans-axial fields of view, with a maximum resolution of 65µm. Both systems have the same overall dimensions of 60 x 60 x 40cm; with the Compact CT system being self-shielded to meet FDA standards. The animal handling system from each system is interchangeable with the other, allowing the mouse to remain in position while moved from one system to the other for multi-modal image acquisitions.
