Does positron emission tomography data acquisition impact simultaneous diffusion-weighted imaging in a whole-body PET/MRI system?

Abstract

OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to test whether the acquisition of positron emission tomography (PET) does interfere with simultaneous diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) in an integrated whole-body PET/MRI system. MATERIAL AND METHODS Fourteen consecutive oncological patients (9 men, 5 women; age 54 ± 13 years ([mean ± standard deviation… (More)
