By using Whole Body MR and PET/CT approach to investigate metastatic disease can lead a better understanding of cancer aggressiveness. Functional imaging such as DWI/ADC, DCE-MR and 11C Choline PET is feasible and thus, combined DWI/ADC mapping, and PET/CT provides radiological biomarkers of molecular environment and could provide targets imaging treatment response.
