  • The authors provide the first demonstration of successful, low-radiation (7.2 mSv) PET/MR imaging of inflammation and microcalcification activity in the coronary arteries. However, this requires specializedĀ approaches tailored to coronary imaging for both attenuation correction and PET reconstruction.
