Our preliminary results demonstrated that 18F-FDG PET/MRI with whole body DWI guarantees an excellent reliability and a high diagnostic performance for pediatric sarcomas. Therefore, considering also its low dose radiation exposure, PET/MRI should be taken into account as one-stop shop for pediatric sarcomas at staging and restaging. Further studies on a larger population are necessary not only to improve pulmonary MR imaging and thus increase the detection of lung metastases but also to fully assess the overall role of PET/MRI for pediatric sarcomas.
