Abstract

Although the use of PET in studies of the gastrointestinal tract is still relatively new, its value is clear. The future will provide a better definition of the indications for PET, refinement of the technology, and its relative value compared with other modalities such as peptide and antibody imaging, CT, MR imaging, and US.
