Abstract

New protocols for imaging cancer have been developed to take advantage of the improved imaging capabilities of long axial field-of-view PET scanners. Both research and clinical applications have been pursued with encouraging early results. Clinical studies have demonstrated improved image quality and the ability to image with less injected activity or for shorter duration. With the increased sensitivity inherent in total-body PET scanners and new imaging paradigms, new challenges in image interpretation have emerged. New research applications have also emerged, including dosimetry, cell tracking, and dual-tracer applications.
