Abstrakt

During the past decades, the role of fludeoxyglucose (FDG)-PET and hybrid PET/computed tomography (CT) has been established clinically in the diagnostic workup of a multitude of infectious and inflammatory disorders. In recent years, the fusion of MR imaging to PET has also been increasingly explored, and this may be especially useful in musculoskeletal and gastrointestinal inflammatory diseases due to exceptional soft tissue contrast and reduced radiation dose. This article outlines the current potential for hybrid molecular imaging in the musculoskeletal system and the gastrointestinal tract with special focus on the potential for fused PET/CT/MR imaging.
