What is the Role of PET–MRI in Cardiology?


PET – MRI exhibits properties such as absolute anatomical localization and volume confirmation in the quantity and detection of the molecular target along with its advantages such as a reduction in the radiation dose compared to PET – CT.

PET – MRI plays a potential role in imaging atherosclerotic plaques and the evaluation of myocardial viability/hibernation. For example, it can present hemodynamic results such as atherosclerotic plaque load and ischemia.

Detection of the threshold for local glucose use by PET and scar transmurality by MRI in determining the size of viable myocardial tissue is a valid method to predict improvement in the regional Wall movement in the subacute period.

PET – MRI in cardiology ensures rapid imaging without exposure to additional radiation.
