Dedicated MR imaging is highly performant for the evaluation of the primary lesion and should regularly be added to whole-body PET/MR imaging for the initial staging. PET/MR imaging is highly sensitive for the detection of nodal involvement and could be combined with the high specificity of axillary second look ultrasound for the confirmation of the N staging. For M staging, with the exception of lung lesions, PET/MR imaging is superior to PET/computed tomography, at half the radiation dose. The predictive value of multiparametric imaging with PET/MR imaging holds promise to improve through radiomics and artificial intelligence.
