Core Tip Combined positron emission tomography and magnetic resonance imaging (PET-MRI) is an exciting new imaging modality; however, its clinical role remains undefined. PET-MRI has distinct potential advantages for pediatric patients, but the data regarding PET-MRI in children remains limited. We report our experience using PET-MRI in pediatric oncology patients. We found excellent correlation between PET-MRI and PET-electronic computer (CT) maximum standardized uptake values as well as excellent test performance characteristics for PET-MRI using PET-CT as a reference. We also include an evaluation of MRI diffusion weighted imaging in comparison to PET-MRI and PET-CT, which has not been reported previously in the literature.
