Comparison of PET/CT vs. PET/MRI

This clinical trial studies how well positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) works compared to PET/magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in evaluating patients with cancer. PET/CT and PET/MRI may determine which scanner is best for the patient's type of cancer and other types of cancers.

Stanford is currently not accepting patients for this trial.
