PET/MRI vs PET/CT in Head and Neck Imaging: When, Why, and How?

By Joshua L. Ryan, Vasantha D. Aaron and Justin B. Sims


The increasing availability of hybrid PET/MRI systems has led to a breadth of new publications and opportunities for use of PET/MRI. While PET/CT has been a valuable tool for oncologic staging, including head and neck malignancy, there are several theoretical and practical advantages a PET/MRI system would have over PET/CT in head and neck imaging. This review article discusses the established role of PET/CT, early evidence for the role of PET/MRI, and protocol considerations for both PET/CT and PET/MRI as they apply to head and neck imaging
