Abstract

Clinical PET/CT was a disruptive technology that blended molecular imaging with anatomic imaging and led to astounding results. The adoption of PET/CT into the realm of Interventional Radiology presents new challenges and opportunities.  Although very few molecular imagers perform interventional procedures and very few interventionalists are molecular imagers, Interventional PET/CT is already offering intriguing possibilities.
