Abstract

By providing functional information, nuclear medicine procedures play a key role in oncology and convey valuable data for all steps of microsphere treatment. Functional imaging is highly synergistic to morphologic imaging data, recently leading to the success of combined morphologic and functional imaging with PET/CT and SPECT/CT.
