Abstract

The authors conclude that combining PET/MR is an interesting research endeavor with uncertain outcome. They argue that, while completely simultaneous brain applications are of research interest immediately, clinical applications do not currently warrant the construction of fully integrated systems. Systems adjacent to each other, where imaging tables are linked with a patient "shuttle" thereby requiring only patient translation but no repositioning, may be a good start to assess the value of integrated PET/MR.
