The ever-increasing demand of efficiency will request PET-MRI power supply systems to improve in terms of compactness, power dissipation and induced noise.
Existing PET detectors and front-end electronics are indeed positioned inside the magnet, while the power supply system in the nearby.
Given the narrow space available inside the magnet and the priority not to hinder a comfortable accommodation of the patient, the aim of moving the supply system inside the magnet itself will force to put particular effort in developing a compact solution.
Low power consumption and the possibility to be remotely controlled will be features to be addressed as well.
