In this work we present the design and development of a prototype SPECT/PET/CT system, suitable for whole body small animal imaging, which is unique not only in national but also in regional level. The integrated SPECT/PET/CT system has three components and is mounted on a rotating gantry, which is designed specifically for such applications. The system is unique on national and regional level. The SPECT component has a 2mm spatial resolution, the PET components a 2.5mm spatial resolution and the X-ray component was recently purchased and is now mounted on the existing gantry and will be evaluated. The complete design of the system and evaluation results are presented.
