There is a new scanning technique in the works. It has been out since summer of 2013 I think. Instead of a Pet CT this is a PET/MRI. It is supposed to be the best in scanning. If you are in the study, they will do a PET/CT then they will do the PET/MRI right after. They will use the same tracer for both tests. You still have to get the PET approved though, which is the catch. Has anyone had this done? If it is successful, it could replace the PET/CT and would allow more people to get it especially those who need scanning frequently. And it has less radiation because the MRI does not have radiation.
If you were involved in this study, how did it go?
