    Abstract

    We developed the ClearPET/XPAD prototype: the first simultaneous PET/CT mouse scanner combining on the same rotating gantry ClearPET modules and the hybrid pixel camera XPAD3 facing an X-ray source. To demonstrate the capabilities of the new machine, we present the first simultaneous PET/CT scans of 68Ge and 22Na point sources, of a micro Derenzo phantom and of a live mouse injected in the tail vein with [18F]FDG.
