Whole-body MRI Takes Less Than 20 Min To Scan A Patient's Entire Body For Cancer Spread To Bone

...owever, they discovered that whole-body FDG-PET is superior to whole-body MRI in for staging lymph nodes, soft-tissue tumors and metastasis in the internal organs. For that study, the researchers scanned 120 patients using both whole-body MRI and whole-body FDG-PET. Similar to the Italian study, the whole-bo...
