About this book

This book, written by authors with national and international reputations in the field, covers all aspects of radionuclide and hybrid bone imaging. Introductory sections present the basic science and consider the current status and limitations of conventional radiological techniques. The underlying principles of PET-CT and SPECT-CT are carefully explained, and the value of different PET and SPECT tracers, assessed. The role of single- and dual-modality approaches in the imaging of benign bone diseases and malignancies is then discussed in detail in a series of well-illustrated chapters. The pathologies addressed include metabolic bone disease, arthritis, bone and joint infections, primary bone and soft tissue tumors, and metastases from breast and prostate cancer. A further section considers the role of bone scintigraphy in the pediatric patient, and the closing chapters focus on miscellaneous subjects, including bone densitometry and radionuclide targeted therapy.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book is an invaluable addition to the reference material available to nuclear physicians and radiologists interested in the imaging of skeletal diseases. It is also probably the best choice for residents who want to improve their knowledge in this field, and for practitioners who need a reference book for their routine practice. Therefore Radionuclide and Hybrid Bone Imaging should be made available in all institutions working in skeletal imaging.” (Mariarosaria Prisco and Luigi Mansi, European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, Vol. 41, 2014)
