abstract

  • Multimodality imaging is driven by the rising demand for highly integrated diagnostic information from in vivo imaging. We provide a comprehensive review of multimodality imaging techniques available in nuclear medicine, including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) combined with ultrasound and MRI combined with stereotactic methods for image-guided breast biopsies and MR-guided stereotactic neurosurgery. Commercially available and investigative hardware- and software-based platforms for multimodality imaging are evaluated critically and their advantages and limitations are outlined.
