PET/MRI could be alternative to PET/CT for liver lesions
PET/MRI is more than adequate in characterizing liver lesions and provides greater lesion conspicuity than PET/CT, offering clinicians a powerful alternative for oncology imaging, according to a German study published in the November issue of the European Journal of Radiology (EJR). PET/MRI provided better diagnostic confidence due to soft-tissue contrast and complementary information from different MRI sequences, according to lead author Dr. Karsten Beiderwellen and colleagues from University Hospital Essen, University of Duisburg-Essen, and University of Dusseldorf (EJR, Vol. 82:11, pp. e669-e675).
