Creating a good image: A probe for combined positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has high colloidal stability and demonstrates facile conjugation ability. Sentinel lymph nodes are clearly identified in the fusion image (see picture; I: injection site) because of the complementary nature of the techniques, which makes accurate anatomical information and fault-free diagnosis possible.
