This chapter summarizes the findings of a global survey aimed at assessing the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (so-called SWOT analysis) of hybrid imaging (HI). Hybrid imaging comprises three imaging modalities: single-photon emission tomography (SPET)/computed tomography (CT), positron emission tomography (PET)/CT, and PET/magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The potential benefit of these modalities has been evaluated with SWOT approach in neurology as well as in whole-body application, centering the analysis mainly on the comparison between PET/CT and PET/MRI to better understand possible spaces of application and future diffusion of the latter.
