About this book

Nuclear Medicine is a diagnostic modality which aims to image and in some cases quantify physiological processes in the body to highlight disease or injury. Within nuclear medicine, over the past few decades, major technological changes have occurred and concomitantly changes in the knowledge and skills required have had to evolve. One of the most significant technological changes has been the fusion of imaging technologies, to create hybrid systems such as SPECT/CT, PET/CT and PET/MR. With these changes in mind, Practical SPECT/CT in Nuclear Medicine provides a handy and informative guide to the purchase, clinical implementation and routine use of a SPECT/CT scanner. Practical SPECT/CT in Nuclear Medicine will be a valuable resource for all personnel working in nuclear medicine and it will be of particular value to trainees.

About the authors

David Wyn Jones, MSc DCR(R) DRI MSRP CRadP is a Superindendent Radiographer at Wrexham Maelor Hospital, North Wales, UK, and a Visiting Lecturer, Examiner and Supervisor at the University of Wales, Bangor, UK.

He is a member of the ARSAC (Administration of Radioactive Substances Advisory Committee) for the Department of Health (Governmental Health Department) in the UK.

Euclid Seeram, RTR BSc MSc FCAMRT is a full time faculty member of the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) and teaches in the Medical Radiography Diploma Program as well as in the Bachelor of Technology Degree Program in Medical Imaging. He worked as a radiologic technologist (radiographer) in both routine and special procedures radiography, and subsequently completed his Bachelor of Science (BSc) from Carleton University in Ottawa, Ontario

Professor Peter Hogg has a Chair in Radiography at the University of Salford and he is University lead for Diagnostic Imaging Research. He sits on several journal boards and is a member of several national / international scientific committees. He has first or co-authored many conference and journal papers

Euclid has published over 35 papers in professional radiologic technology journals and has had 16 textbooks published to date.

Currently he is a member of the editorial board for the Journal of Medical Imaging and Radiation Sciences, and a member of the Editorial Board for Radiography, an International Journal of Diagnostic Imaging and Radiation Therapy. Euclid also serves on the editorial board for the Biomedical Imaging and Intervention Journal based in Malaysia. Additionally he is the Editor-in-Chief for the Radiography Section of e-Health Professionals, and new online journal, and also serves as a peer reviewer for the Journal of Allied Health.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“Intended primarily for radiographers and nuclear medicine technologists who work with SPECT/CT, this book is also valuable for other professionals within medical imaging. … This book is a practical guide to SPECT/CT imaging with good illustrations. The references are updated, and the index is helpful. I highly recommend this book to trainees and practitioners in nuclear medicine, radiology, and medical physics.” (E. Edmund Kim, The Journal of Nuclear Medicine, Vol. 54 (11), November, 2013)
