Abstract

The progress made in hybrid PET imaging during the past decades has significantly expanded the role of this modality in both clinical and research applications. Semi-quantitative PET/CT has been the workhorse of clinical PET/CT due to its simplicity and availability. In addition to semi-quantitative PET/CT, volumetric PET and global metabolic activity have recently shown promise in a more accurate assessment of various diseases. PET/CT has been widely used in pediatric oncologic and non-oncologic diseases. Here we have highlighted few of the pitfalls in the quantitative PET/CT and their potential remedies which have potential in PET/CT evaluation of pediatric diseases.
