About this book

Clinical PET-CT in Radiology: Integrated Imaging in Oncology presents the latest hybrid scanning technology for applications of clinical PET-CT within body imaging. In this comprehensive text, Paul Shreve, MD, and David W. Townsend, PhD, have brought together an internationally-distinguished group of authors to cover all aspects of clinical PET-CT relevant to body oncology imaging technology using CT and FDG PET. The chapters provide practicing imaging physicians with a concise, practical guide, presenting PET-CT as an integrated anatomic-metabolic imaging procedure applied to cancer imaging. Physics and instrumentation chapters are oriented to provide an overview of the available technology and some physical concepts. Comprehensive clinical chapters are structured to provide concise and structured background regarding the clinical management of each cancer and the role of PET-CT imaging in all phases of patient management. Each clinical chapter will help the imaging physician more completely understand the relationship and role of the integrated modality imaging with respect to the overall treatment of the cancer patient.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This comprehensive textbook presents the latest hybrid PET/CT technology for applications in cancer management, particularly body areas for which correlation with other radiologic imaging is available. … This book provides a concise and structured background on the management of cancer and the role of PET/CT, which is in the mainstream of oncologic imaging. I am sure that this book will be a valuable companion for imaging physicians and will also be helpful for oncologists, general physicians, and imaging trainees.” (E. Edmund Kim, The Journal of Nuclear Medicine, Vol. 53 (3), March, 2012)

“The book is filled with countless greyscale PET and CT images that are then combined to produce the now familiar colour-and-greyscale functional overlays on top of the anatomy. This format is repeated throughout the book to produce a spectacular atlas of PET-CT covering the entire body. … overall this is an excellent textbook that delivers exactly what is sets out to achieve.” (Gary Liney, RAD Magazine, February, 2012)

“This book is full of useful information for understanding PET-CT and for defining its correct clinical application in oncology. Its value is further increased by the high quality of the images and by the up-to-date bibliography and list of references for further reading. Therefore, we recommend this book to a wide range of readers including nuclear physicians and radiologists … residents and personnel involved in diagnostic imaging, and all clinicians who want to learn more about PET/CT.” (Raffaella Carotenuto and Luigi Mansi, European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, Vol. 39, 2012)

“The book is intended for imaging physicians with some knowledge of PET-CT. All of the chapters are richly illustrated with pictures and drawings to aid understanding and illustrate important points … . Clinical PET-CT comprises 437 pages divided into 32 chapters written by almost 50 authors, including well-known experts as well as younger researchers/physicians. … Most chapters are well written and adequately describe staging, treatment, and prognosis, as well as the role, strengths, and weaknesses of PET and CT … .” (Barbara M. Fischer, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 306 (13), 2011)
