  • An in-depth explanation and presentation of state-of-the-art in SPECT
  • Covers the basic scientific principles and applications
  • The most complete work on SPECT fundamentals published to date

This fascinating volume is a comprehensive guide to the underlying principles and areas of application of single photon emission tomography (SPECT) in nuclear medicine.

It brings together all the aspects of theory, physics, instrumentation, image processing and quality assurance needed to understand and perform high quality SPECT.

In other words, it offers the most complete reference on SPECT fundamentals published to date.

This single reference work provides an in-depth explanation and presentation of state-of-the-art SPECT covering the basic scientific principles and applications of SPECT.

What makes this work so timely is that SPECT is undergoing a considerable increase in interest with the commercial introduction of combined SPECT/CT systems.

Authored by acknowledged experts in the field, and with over 200 illustrations, readers need look no further for a thorough examination of the subject.
