PET-MRI

PET-MRI combines positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) into one imaging system. Positron emission tomography–magnetic resonance imaging (PET-MRI) is a hybrid imaging technology that incorporates magnetic resonance imaging soft tissue morphological imaging and positron emission tomography functional imaging.

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)
