Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is a debilitating chronic pain condition affecting millions of patients worldwide. However, no specific diagnosis is currently available to accurately detect the pain generators in CRPS, and thus successful pain management for CRPS is very challenging. In this abstract, we propose a PET/MRI approach with a novel pain-specific PET tracer for identifying pain generators in CRPS. Our early experience with the proposed PET/MRI approach demonstrates that the image findings could alter the pain management for CRPS patients to achieve better pain-relief outcome.
