Target Audience
This article contains information of value to physicians in nuclear medicine, cardiology and cardiothoracic surgery as well as to nuclear medicine technologists.

Objectives
On successful completion of this activity, participants should be able to describe:

  1. Discuss advantages and shortcomings of hybrid PET/MR scanners with respect to cardiovascular applications (e.g. myocardial perfusion imaging and viability imaging).
  2. Describe additional value of the MR component in cardiac imaging.
  3. Discuss technical challenges and workflow considerations regarding hybrid PET/MR scanners in the field of cardiology (e.g. attenuation correction and cardiac/respiratory/patient motion).
