Although envisioned since the late 1980s, hybrid PET/MR systems only became commercially available in the last few years and more than a decade later than hybrid PET/CT. This is explained by the technological challenges originating from the combination of these two very different imaging modalities. Manifold interferences between the two modalities (in terms of B0, Gradient, RF, Temperature, Photon Attenuation, Space Constraints, Workflow, …) needed to identified, understood and solved.
