Advancing age significantly affects the structural and functional characteristics of organs and tissues, including the peripheral nervous system (PNS) and musculoskeletal system. PET molecular imaging systems offer the ability to assess the metabolic and quantitative effects due to nerve and muscle injuries, which has the potential to impact clinical management of aged subjects. Here, we aim to describe some features of molecular imaging PET systems using different tracers and methods of imaging in musculoskeletal disorders and peripheral neuropathies commonly seen in elderly patients.
