Two fixation devices for the pigs were produced from large plastic tubes, with a distance between the arches of either 15 or 21 cm, corresponding to the scanner FOVs. Assuming correct positioning of the device in the scanner, the arches made it visually clear where the FOV of the PET scan was located, thereby facilitating optimal positioning in the scanner. The fixation device also facilitated symmetric limb positioning and the avoidance of limb movement during the long scan sessions. (a) The 21 cm FOV fixation device. (b) Pig number 6 in the device.
