Positron Emission Tomography: An Overview
In this era of evidence-based medicine, both anatomical as well as functional imaging is necessary. CT and MRI provide excellent structural details of diseased organs, and conventional nuclear medicine procedures complement the anatomical and structural details by providing mostly quantitative functional information. Positron Emission Tomography (PET) has added a new dimension to the existing modalities.
