Positron emission tomography (PET) scanning, a functional imaging technique, is playing a more and more important role in modern medical science compared to the conventional anatomy imaging technologies such as X-ray and computed tomography (CT), ultrasound, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).Though with the help of modern computer technology, the CT, MRI, and ultrasound have begun to be used for functional imaging, the PET scan still has advantages over other imaging modalities.
