PET/MR is a promising multimodality imaging approach. Attenuation is by far the largest correction required for quantitative PET imaging. MR-based attenuation correction have been extensively pursued, especially for brain imaging, in the past several years. In this article, we review atlas and direct imaging MR-based PET attenuation correction methods. The technical principles behind these methods are detailed and the advantages and disadvantages of these methods are discussed.
