RSNA On The Air with Dr. Thomas Hope - PET/MRI

RSNA On The Air with Dr. Thomas Hope.  PET/MRI two machines combined into one and can do both PET and MRI scans simultaneously.

 

PET and MR scans can be done simultaneously since it is now one machine. It is an engineering feat in getting a PET to function inside a strong magnetic field. This gives a patient an adequate MR stage and PET whole body at the exact same time.  It also lowers the dosage and is more convenient.
