In another victory for the admissibility of PET Scan and Diffusion Tensor Imaging, William D. Harper, Esq., a Woodbury, Minnesota trial attorney was successful in having PET and DTI admitted.  In its decision, the Court found that  “it is clear to me that the technology involving PET scans and DTI is something that is not novel to the medical industry.  It is not novel science, it has been around for maybe some 20 years, and is relied upon by medical professionals in a number of settings.”
