According to new research, whole-body PET/MRI might improve detection of liver lesions compared with PET/CT and could be used as an alternative tool for oncology imaging. After screening 70 patients with possible liver lesions, PET/MRI identified 97 lesions in the study cohort, 26 of which were malignant while 71 lesions were benign. PET/CT overlooked nine benign lesions, according to the study published in the European Journal of Radiology. Researchers plan to conduct a larger study to further explore PET/MRI in liver imaging.
