About this book

The field of nuclear medicine has evolved rapidly in recent years, and one very important aspect of this progress has been the introduction of hybrid imaging systems. PET-CT has already gained widespread acceptance in many clinical settings, especially within oncology, and now SPECT-CT promises to emulate its success. Useful applications of this new approach have been identified not only in oncology but also in endocrinology, cardiology, internal medicine, and other specialties. This atlas, which includes hundreds of high-quality images, is a user-friendly guide to the optimal use and interpretation of SPECT-CT. The full range of potential SPECT-CT applications in clinical routine is considered and assessed by acknowledged experts. The book is designed to serve as a reference text for both nuclear physicians and radiologists; it will also provide fundamental support for radiographers, technologists, and nuclear medicine and radiology residents. Following the editors’ other atlases on PET-CT and non-FDG PET-CT, the Atlas of SPECT-CT completes a trilogy offering up-to-date information and guidance on the full spectrum of hybrid imaging.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“It is a well written text which is easy to read and is full of useful information. … The book is … simple to follow. It would be suitable for all those involved in nuclear medicine at all levels of experience. It is an excellent introduction for those starting SPECT-CT or planning to expand their use of the hybrid systems. … it is a teaching aid which is a pleasure to read as a textbook, and to review specific systems through the cases.” (Alp Notghi, RAD Magazine, June, 2012)

“Atlas of SPECT-CT … collects a lot of very interesting contributions written by many expert nuclear medicine physicians in 13 chapters. They report with a very clear and simple language the technical basis and the main indications for SPECT/CT. … represent a complete educational support for physicists, technologists, radiographers, fellows and students. The reading and understanding are very easy, since the textbook is well structured and the format is elegant and comfortable.” (Emilio Bombardieri, European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, Vol. 39, 2012)

“Aims to offer the reader know-how and up-to-date knowledge on state of the art applications in nuclear medicine … . Text pages are limited to the essential concepts necessary to understand how the system works, and to the explanations necessary to understand what is presented in the images, enriched by a more or less long list of references, suggested readings, and tables. … this atlas-book should be useful to all those who want to gain knowledge and insight into this fascinating new diagnostic tool.” (G. Beluffi, La Radiologia Medica, Vol. 117, 2012)
