Ongoing research includes clinical studies that address the role of molecular imaging with PET in the management of patients with lymphoma, breast cancer, colorectal cancer and lung cancer. Of special interest are the fusion of form and function provided by PET/CT allowing for non-invasive insights into malignant disease processes, and monitoring of cancer treatment.
