SAII's monitoring and gating systems are compatible with MR, PET, CT, SPECT and Optical imaging systems. A variety of sensors measure ECG, respiration, temperature, pressure including invasive blood pressure, oxygen saturation and end-tidal CO2 in sedated mice, rats and other animals undergoing imaging examination.
After more than a decade providing MR-compatible systems for medical research primarily for rodents, we have made the commitment to expand our product line to include a MR-compatible Multi-parameter Monitoring and Gating System for Veterinary use. As a result we also will be able to provide new MR-compatible monitoring options for animals larger than rodents for all existing users of Model 1025 and Model 1030 Monitoring and Gating Systems.

Systems provide a continuous monitor of animal physiologic status while generating gate signals to synchronize scanner data acquisition with cardiac and respiratory motion. MR-compatible heater and ventilator options are available to control the temperature and ventilation of mice and rats during MR or other imaging procedures.
