PETCT scanners in Oncology

The development of combined PET/CT scanners has dramatically changed the approach to PET image interpretation, as the seamless integration of anatomic and PET images allows more accurate determination of abnormal sites and potential clinical relevance [115]. The superior accuracy of this approach in the assessment of many cancers including NSCLC, colorectal cancer, lymphoma and melanoma has been reported [116, 117]. Further assessment of this technology, including the ability to integrate PET/CT data in radiotherapy treatment planning, is an area of significant importance for the management of oncology patients in the future.
