Uses of medical imaging

 Medical imaging techniques such as positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging are routinely used in oncology and neuroscience. For measurement of tumour, shrinkage is a commonly used surrogate endpoint in solid tumour response evaluation. In Alzheimer's disease, MRI scans of the entire brain can accurately assess the rate of hippocampal atrophy , while PET scans can measure the brain's metabolic activity by measuring regional glucose metabolism, and beta-amyloid plaques using tracers such as Pittsburgh compound B (PiB).
