MR/PET is able to combine the high resolution and soft tissue contrast of MRI with the ability of PET to provide information about metabolic rate. However, metabolic rate is influenced by local temperature. In this work we have investigated how temperature increase by SAR absorption during an MRI scan may affect metabolic rate, important parameter in PET images.
