The purpose of our presentation is to describe the image
quality, practical limitations and artifacts, based on
our early clinical experience with PET-MRI in patients
with neurofibromatosis type 1, who underwent whole body
evaluation for staging the disease. Our preliminary
study points to two of the great potential applications
of PET-MRI whole body imaging at a lower dose than
PET/CT and applications in pediatric oncology.
