    For patients with advanced breast cancer, positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging can improve quality of life and survival by providing physicians with information on the effectiveness of chemotherapy prior to surgery, say researchers presenting at the 2013 Annual...

Early detection of cancer lesions with the latest generation of PET/CT scanners supports improved patient management. Yet much of PET’s potential, particularly for following patients and as a component in PET/MR, remains unrealized. (Image courtesy of Siemens Healthcare and the University of Tennessee, Knoxville)
