Combined-Modality Imaging (PET/CT, PET/MRI, and SPECT/CT) CT, MRI, and PET all provide complementary “views” of normal and diseased tissues, with PET offering quantitative functional information and MRI and CT scans providing high-resolution anatomical information. The power of combined-modality imaging will increase dramatically as molecularly targeted radiotracers with high specific activity are developed and as the sensitivity and resolution of PET increase to allow for high-resolution, temporal imaging.
