The most common molecular imaging technology is the hybrid PET / CT system.

The most common molecular imaging technology is the hybrid PET / CT system, MRI shows some advantages for combination of PET with computed tomography , which uses X-ray technology to detect structural information. But it is not as sensitive as MRI scans soft tissue contrast soft tissue contrast CT images of specific areas of the body. Including the brain, head and neck and pelvis. Provide limited resolution of the anatomical structures MRI technology is ideal for the imaging, these complex areas of soft tissue and unresolved unresolved musculoskeletal issues. For data collection.RI may also value for imaging liver and breast tissue and would be a useful tool for imaging children deliver due to its reduced radiation dose.

For this study, eleven patients were diagnosed with cancer dual imaging single injection PET / CT followed by PET / MRI imaging.
