Abstract

Composite image diagnosis using a hybrid PET/MRI system is beneficial comparing to individual diagnosis of PET functional images and MRI anatomical images in standalone systems. Because the hybrid PET/MRI system makes it possible to detect disease more accurately and quickly. Moreover, it improves staging evaluation, therapy monitoring and follow-up observation. The stand-alone PET and MRI systems have already been established as useful clinical methods and provides complementary information for each other. With the hybrid PET/MRI system, it is expected to cover a wider range of clinical application. In addition, the hybrid system enables us to get highly precise registration information and more accurate fusion images.
