Abstract

Recent years have witnessed an expanded use of single-photon emission CT and PET for a wide range of clinical applications, including imaging of brain abnormalities. As a result, molecular brain imaging is now being more extensively utilized in criminal cases, in particular in the sentencing phase of a trial. This perspective aims to provide a brief overview for the practicing radiologist of this expanded use of single-photon emission CT and PET in criminal cases and will discuss the role of radiology in this field.
