Technology is changing rapidly, and that includes medical technology. Many medical technologies, such as positron emission tomographic (PET) scanners, were rare a few years ago, but are now available at many community hospitals. Moreover, devices such as PET and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners are available in mobile units, which allows facilities to share the cost of these units. The purpose of this article is to provide Perspectives readers with an update on techniques that are being used clinically for brain imaging. In light of space limitations, this will not be an exhaustive review, but is intended to provide the reader with an overview of some of the technologies that are being used.
