MR Solutions expands preclinical scanner range with CT scanners

MR Solutions is broadening its range of preclinical scanners with the launch of four CT models. This new range of CT scanners is designed to operate alone or with the clip on PET and SPECT imaging systems developed by MR Solutions for their range of MRI scanners.

The MR Solutions family now includes six cryogen-free MRI scanners with a range between 3T to 9.4T, five PET which include clip-on and within the bore and two SPECT.

“The new range of CT scanners have industry-leading highcontrast and high resolution with zoom facilities. The company is the only manufacturer to offer a comprehensive range of preclinical cryogen-free MRI and CT systems with unparalleled structural imaging and completely interchangeable imaging modalities – PET and SPECT – between the two core imaging platforms. The PET and SPECT units can also be used as standalone scanners,” according to a press release.

All of the systems use common motorized beds and carriers to facilitate “quick and easy movement” between MRI and CT scanners.

Dr. David Taylor, founder and chairman of MR Solutions said, “As with all of our innovation this was prompted and discussed with the world leaders in preclinical scanning. Their number one requirement is having the highest resolution but particularly important is the interchangeability of the various scanning modalities and the ability to have common carriers for rapid transfers.”

MR Solutions is involved with orders from academic and government laboratories across the world with the first deliveries scheduled for later this year.
