  • What is a PET-MRI Scan?

    PET-MRI is a new medical imaging device that performs both positron-emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans at the same time. PET is a medical imaging examination that provides information on how an organ in the body is working. MRI uses a magnetic field and radio waves to provide images of any part of the body from any angle.

    The simultaneous use of PET and MRI provides a more detailed and enhanced imaging than either procedure does alone. This new hybrid imaging technology aims to provide information on the causes, effects, and development of various diseases.

  • PET-MRI has the potential to find and diagnose certain complex malignancies, including cancers of the neck, pelvis, and neck, with a high level of accuracy and certainty. This technique allows doctors to provide better disease diagnosis and treatment planning, thereby improving patient care. It also allows doctors to monitor how certain drugs travel through the patient's body to determine proper bodily functions. Additionally, PET-MRI allows researchers to monitor stem cells (undifferentiated, biological cells) as they are maturing and differentiate (develop) into different body tissues.
