Imaging Strategies and Perspectives in Oncology
In the past 30 years, there has been an enormous increase in the range of imaging techniques available to investigate patients with cancer. The value of ultrasonography, X-ray, computed tomography (CT), and nuclear imaging, including single photon emission computed tomgraphy (SPECT), positron emission tomography (PET), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), have often been assessed in cancer management. Some methods may have limited application in common diseases or only be useful in rare tumors, and confusion can arise about the role and value of these techniques.
