While CT led the way anatomically, PET has been our principal means of molecular imaging, hence their integration was a natural development. Nuclear MR has also seen steady growth, offering high resolution with increasing physiologic capabilities, though without PET's exquisite sensitivity and diversity. This period of 'parallel play' may be ending, as technical solutions to PET/MRI integration are found, and applications taking advantage of their complimentary characteristics identified. This talk will explore the potentials and pitfalls of combined studies using these two distinct nuclear imaging methods.
