  • A user-friendly, low-cost atlas in a handy format, featuring about 500 images
  • First available PET-CT atlas to focus on non-FDG tracers
  • An invaluable guide to image interpretation with clear instruction on learning points and pitfalls
  • Will serve as a reference text for nuclear physicians and radiologists and will also be of great benefit to radiographers and technologists

Although [18F]fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) generally shows an excellent performance as a cancer-imaging agent when using PET-CT, there are some settings in which other radiopharmaceuticals offer advantages. Such non-FDG tracers are now gaining widespread acceptance not only in research but also in clinical practice, with the acquisition of promising results in the management of various cancers. This atlas, including about 500 high-quality images, is a user-friendly guide to PET-CT imaging beyond FDG. A wide range of tracers is covered, such as 18F- and 11C-choline, 11C-methionine, 18F-ethyl-L-tyrosine, 68Ga-DOTA-NOC, 11C-acetate, 11C-thymidine, and 18F-DOPA. Throughout, the emphasis is on image interpretation, with guidance on the recognition of normal, benign, and malignant uptake and clear instruction on learning points and pitfalls. This book is a companion to the editors’ recently published Atlas of PET-CT, which focuses exclusively on the use of FDG. It is designed to serve as a reference text for both nuclear physicians and radiologists, and will also be of great benefit to radiographers, technologists, and nuclear medicine and radiology residents.
