This combined system has advantages over CT alone as functional information is added to morphological data, and this combined system has advantages over PET alone because pathological areas of tracer uptake are better localized and the image acquisition time is reduced 4 - 7. After having the patients fast for at least four hours, they were administered an intravenous injection of to MBq approximately 10 mCi FDG; oral contrast was not administered.
