Here, wed like to report relevant influences of novel SiPM-based PET scanner on MR images at ultra-high magnetic field. Several MR image including FSE, SE, GRE, 3D SPGR, and EPI were evaluated with a 7-T MRI scanner and 35-mm-inner-diameter mouse body transceiver coil. The experimental results show that the PET insert unit affects only minor effect on MR images that can be ensured for preclinical evaluation. It was also proved that to perform multi-functional study of PET and functional MRI using our PET insert unit is possible.
