     A newly-developed mobile PET scanner (fxPET) was allowed a direct-fitting to existing MRI scanner for PET/MRI. In the present study, in order to confirm the radiation safety of using fxPET in MRI room that setting outside of the radiation controlled area, we estimated the scattered annihilation radiation and the radiation exposure dose of medical staffs while managing fxPET by using thermoluminescence Dosimeters (TLD) and a cylindrical container phantom filled with 18F-FDG 100 MBq. It was found that the scattered annihilation radiation was almost the same values from back ground level. These results indicate that fxPET is safely set outside of the radiation controlled area.
