Positron emission tomography (PET and PET /CT) imaging facilities allow physicians and veterinarians to use this powerful molecular imaging technique for clinical and research applications, especially in oncology. PET /CT offers an opportunity to evaluate the metabolic nature of cancer in addition to anatomical data. Unlike small animal models of human cancers, naturally occurring cancers in companion animals represent a great opportunity to validate PET /CT imaging techniques, they benefit tumor-bearing pets while simultaneously advancing development of new imaging techniques and therapeutic strategies for human cancers. This lecture gives an overview of PET /CT imaging modality and its clinical and research applications in veterinary oncology and the potential research collaborations between veterinarians and physicians.
