Image correction and diagnostic capabilities of two hybrid molecular imaging systems found similar in a comparative heart imaging study Just a few years ago, integrated positron emission tomography and magnetic resonance (PET/MR) imaging was found only in research institutes, but little by little the technology has expanded into clinical practice. This is especially true for cardiac indications, for which the highly sensitive soft tissue contrast of MR and the functional and metabolic...
