About this book

PET-CT is increasingly being employed in the diagnosis of both oncological and non-oncological patients, yet nuclear medicine physicians may have only limited practical experience of rare diseases and may experience difficulty in recognizing and interpreting rare findings. This unique atlas documents a large number of clinical cases that will help practitioners to identify findings and diseases that, though rare, are sufficiently frequent to be encountered in routine practice. Two types of cases are presented: patients evaluated for rare diseases and patients evaluated for standard diseases in whom atypical PET findings were detected. Each reported case includes a brief description of the clinical history, representative color PET-CT images obtained using FDG or other tracers, and a short explanation of the disease and findings. This atlas will enable practitioners to make conclusive reports of PET-CT scans that would otherwise have been inconclusive.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This unique atlas has collected a large number of clinical cases to help PET/CT users in their routine practice. … We recommend this book to all who want to improve their knowledge on less frequent diseases evaluated with FDG or radiotracers beyond FDG. … this book will be of interest both to experts and beginners, i.e. to physicians and residents who want to improve their knowledge taking advantage of a wide experience.” (Luigi Mansi and Christian Marsiglia, European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, Vol. 39, 2012)
