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.
