PET/MRI: Implementing, Reading, and Billing New Technology

June 18, 2013

This is second in a two-part series investigating PET/MRI’s status and future two years after FDA approval. The first part examined changes in workflow and protocol.  

With any new technology comes growing pains. And those incorporating PET/MRI machines into their workflow are feeling them. While there’s no doubt about the excitement and promise of lower radiation imaging with higher quality visualization for certain studies, getting to a smooth workflow and maximizing the technology’s benefits involves time and experimentation. Fortunately those in the trenches can share their experience.
