Abstract Glioma is the most aggressive brain tumour, resulting in death often within 1-2 years. Current treatment strategies involve surgical resection followed by chemoradiation therapy. Despite continuing improvements in the delivery of adjuvant therapies, there has not been a dramatic increase in survival for glioma. Molecular imaging techniques have become central in the development of new therapeutic strategies in recent years. The multimodal imaging technology of positron emission tomography/magnetic resonance imaging (PET/MRI) has recently been realised on a preclinical scale and the effect of this technology is starting to be observed in preclinical drug development for glioma. Here, we propose that PET/MRI will play an integral part in the development of new diagnostic and therapeutic strategies for glioma.
