Thieme; 2019. doi:10.1055/b-006-160164Comment: The combination of sequentially acquired data from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with molecular information from positron emission tomography (PET) has long been conducted by side-by-side analysis of the images or software-based image coregistration. However, after successful incorporation of PET/computed tomography (CT) scanners, several investigators developed techniques to make hybrid PET/MRI scanner a clinical reality.

Thieme; 2019. doi:10.1055/b-006-160164Comment: Although FDG PET imaging may not be indicated in the majority of newly diagnosed brain tumors, it is useful in specific situations. It should be noted that FDG PET is intrinsically limited for assessing brain tumors due to generally low tumor-to-background contrast. FDG uptake in low-grade tumors is often similar to white matter, while FDG uptake in high-grade tumors may be less than or similar to gray matter.
