About this book

Since 1999/2000 simultaneous imaging of anatomical features and metabolic activities using fused PET and CT images has complemented and in many cases even replaced what was originally done as separate analysis. – Is this a small revolution? – In fact, this new approach can be considered to be without a rival for imaging diagnosis. The complementary efforts of nuclear medicine physicians and radiologists have improved the diagnostic value of PET/CT scans. The successful use of PET/CT in the field of oncology has been documented world-wide, and in cardiology we can take advantage of the significant findings of PET diagnosis, particularly in the USA. New prospects are now available for paediatric oncology and molecular medicine.
Based on the experience gained by PET/CT experts with more than 10,000 patients, this manual impressively demonstrates the advantages of combined PET/CT. It also refers to publications from Europe, the USA and Asia as well as numerous studies.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This nuclear medicine atlas provides a complete overview of the diagnostic aspect of PET-CT … . The book is well organized with abundant illustrations and teaching points. … The audience includes nuclear medicine professionals, radiologists, oncologists, cardiologists, and residents and fellows in these areas. … a valuable resource for new practitioners as well as for experienced nuclear medicine physicians who interpret PET-CT in either oncology or cardiology. … This excellent atlas will be a great addition to any nuclear medicine physician’s library … ." (Oussama Nachar, Doody’s Review Service, October, 2008)

"The portion of this book dealing with oncology is updated information based on PET/CT-Atlas, a German-language book … . Each case presented in the book includes a brief clinical history, imaging findings, and teaching points. The images are clear and well done. … I highly recommend this book as a quick reference to nuclear physicians and radiologists in practice or in training. This atlas and manual will also be useful to oncologists, cardiologists, and imaging technologists." (E. Edmund Kim, The Journal of Nuclear Medicine, Vol. 50 (6), June, 2009)
