The best of two worlds, combined

PET/MR has its own focus group in our department, although it is “only” hardware. But since it is a fairly new modality to combine a PET-scanner with an MRI-scanner, it will naturally be origin of many new research projects. Our aim is to fine-tune and further develop this methodology, and hopefully, eventually develop some “killer applications” for this type of scanners. The focus group has a natural overlap with other focus groups i.e. Cancer diseases, Brain disease and special topics, where it is meaningful to combine the two scanning modalities.
The focus group is also an internal user-forum where we meet on a regularly basis (every two weeks) to discuss and solve day-to-day challenges in a clinical setup.
