Purpose: In this work, we describe five oncology patients whose clinical management were uniquely benefited by a novel scanner that acquires positron emission tomography (PET) and x-ray computed tomography (CT) in the same imaging session.Procedures: Co-registered 2-[F(18)]-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose (FDG)-PET and CT images were acquired using a combined PET/CT scanner.
