Abstract

PET/MR imaging has the potential to markedly alter pancreatic care in both the malignant, and premalignant states with the ability to perform robust, high-resolution, quantitative molecular imaging. The ability of PET/MR imaging to monitor disease processes, potentially correct for motion in the upper abdomen, and provide novel biomarkers that may be a combination of MR imaging and PET biomarkers, offers a unique, precise interrogation of the pancreatic milieu going forward.
