Combined modality PET/MR may be a sensitive modality to detect severe large vessel vasculitis. To distinguish severe large vessel vasculitis, a qualitative review of PET imaging findings appears more useful than standardized uptake values of a patient’s highest-uptake vessel. Inflammatory marker levels and trends, as well as single-modality scan findings, were not significantly different between severe and non-severe large vessel vasculitis patients.
