Despite the initial uncertainty and skepticism, both positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) (Kinahan et al. 1998) and single photon emission (SPECT)/CT (Hasagawa et al. 1993) were quickly accepted as standard practice in both preclinical and clinical imaging. Since then, the importance of dual-modality imaging techniques has grown as new applications continue to emerge and their success continues to flourish. At the same time, their successes have spurred active research in other multimodality imaging techniques, including different combinations of PET, SPECT, CT, optical, and ultrasound.
