    Abstract

    Introduction: The purpose of this poster presentation is to provide a pictorial review of the emerging role of image fusion between PET and CT to
    provide a highly enriched integration of anatomical and physiological datasets
    for image interpretation. In particular, these cases highlight the role of CT
    in delineating PET biodistribution in anatomically complex structures; head/
    neck, chest, abdomen/pelvis.

    Method: The data sets were performed on a hybrid GE PET/CT system
    with 64 slice CT. The data represents 5 clinical cases of torso based, FDG
    based PET scans in oncology applications including 2 head and neck, 2 pelvis
    and 1 whole body.

    Results: The case study results provide an insight into the importance of
    PET/CT fusion to diagnostic integrity.

    Conclusion: PET/CT fusion plays an important role in improving the diagnostic integrity in a reciprocal fashion across a diverse range of clinical
    applications.
