In the current diagnostic paradigm, the substantial physical sensitivity gain is the main advantage of total-body (TB) PET/computed tomography (CT). Therefore, it is up to the imaging community to tailor protocols that take advantage of this unique innovation as it relates to the needs of the pediatric population. However, the paradigm-shifting promise of TB-PET/CT lies in its capability to perform dynamic, delayed, and low-dose imaging, which have the potential to vastly increase the range of diseases and disorders that can be investigated or managed using molecular imaging.
