Combining modalities: the advantages of PET-CT-UUI

Researchers from France have combined traditional PET-CT and ultrafast ultrasound imaging (UUI) to create a new hybrid imaging modality that can identify metabolic activities while capturing rapid phenomena with high resolution. This approach should yield simultaneous anatomical, metabolic and functional information while being relatively low in cost. In a proof-of-concept study, the team details how the technology could benefit the fields of oncology and cardiology (Nature Biomed. Eng. 2 85). {read more here}
