PET-CT: Better Understandings About a Tumor

Researchers succeeded in combining tumor data from imaging methods and high-throughput technologies with high precision. The goal is to make metabolic processes in tumors visible in their entirety and thus to better understand them.

For this purpose, image data from positron emission tomography (PET) and computer tomography (CT) were combined with protein and metabolic data. The research team led by Professor Bernd Pichler from the Werner Siemens Imaging Center at the University of Tübingen published its results in the scientific journal PNAS.
