fusion imaging

a combination of two images from different modalities, such as computed tomography and positron emission tomography.

fusion imaging

Any combination of radiological technologies for generating images of body structures. Fusion imaging includes positron emission tomography-computed tomographic (PET-CT) scanning, CT–magnetic resonance fusion imaging, and single photon emissions computed tomographic (SPECT) fusion imaging.
