This study evaluates if retrospective software-fused magnetic resonance imaging/positron emission tomography (MRI/PET) images can improve concordance of MRI and PET/computed tomography (CT) findings in the pelvis and improve overall lesion detection and characterization, as compared with independent side-by-side interpretation of MRI and PET data sets. Institutional review board approval was obtained for this retrospective study. Our institution's electronic medical record system was examined for pelvic MRI scans and whole-body (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose-PET/CT scans performed within a 2-month interval between January 2007 and June 2011. PET and MRI data sets for which there were discordant fi..View full abstract
