    Without histology confirmation of lymph nodes, which are problematically DWI bright on WBMRI, we cant adopt as a gold standard.

        Also CT 5mins, WBMRI 40min (if available). Not to mention cost, and I wont even try to calc. the cost of an WBMRI in the US.

          MR/PET eyes to thighs is undoubtedly the best.

            what are cpt codes for whole body mri and pet/mri?  Do you get reimbursement for these exams or are they “research only”?
