SNMMI: Whole-body dynamic PET imaging offers broader view of cancer

A newly developed technique leverages integrin imaging and multi-bed-position dynamic PET acquisition to create advanced whole-body parametric maps, which could help evaluate tumors and metastases throughout the body, according to research presented at the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) 2015 annual meeting in Baltimore.
