About this book

Clinical PET and PET/CT, 2nd Edition presents a valuable overview of the basic principles and clinical applications of PET and PET/CT. Emphasis is placed on the familiarization of normal distribution, artifacts, and common imaging agents such as FDG in conjunction with CT, MRI, and US to establish the clinical effectiveness of PET and PET/CT. Practical information about updated PET and PET/CT scanners, imaging processing, correlation, and quantification of PET and PET/CT measurements is also presented. This book is divided into two sections, the first half dealing with the basic principles of PET and PET/CT for instrumentation, fusion, radiopharmaceuticals, radiosynthesis, safety, and cost analysis. The second part of this volume presents chapters on the clinical techniques and applications of PET and PET/CT for common oncologic, cardiologic, and neurologic diseases. Numerous full color images provide comprehensive coverage on essential clinical PET and PET/CT studies.

Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

“The main objective is to provide a valuable reference for clinicians and trainees in the use of PET and PET/CT in clinical practice. The book achieves its goals. It is written for practitioners in nuclear medicine, radiology, oncology, cardiology, and neurology. It also is intended as a reference for trainees in these fields, especially nuclear medicine and radiology. … Overall, this is a good reference on the subject and is a high quality book.” (Bennett S. Greenspan, Doody’s Book Reviews, May, 2013)
