About this book

​ SPECT/CT cameras have considerably improved diagnostic accuracy in recent years based in large part on the better localization and definition of scintigraphic findings. This book covers the full spectrum of clinical applications of SPECT/CT in diagnosis and therapy planning of benign and malignant diseases. Opening chapters discuss the technology and physics of SPECT/CT and its use for dosimetry. The role of SPECT/CT in the imaging of a range of pathologic conditions is then addressed in detail. Applications covered include, among others, imaging of the thyroid, bone, and lungs, imaging of neuroendocrine tumors, cardiac scintigraphy, and sentinel node scintigraphy. Individual chapters are also devoted to therapy planning in selective internal radiation therapy of liver tumors and bremsstrahlung SPECT/CT. Readers will find this book to be an essential and up-to-date source of information on this invaluable hybrid imaging technique.

Reviews

“Clinical Applications of SPECT-CT has fulfilled its intended aim of offering the reader know-how and up-to-date knowledge on current state-of-the-art SPECT/CT concepts and clinical applications. It is truly one of the best textbooks available on this exciting and fast-growing field. … this book is an asset for those who currently use SPECT/CT in daily practice and/or those who are planning to use SPECT/CT. … a great teaching resource and a must-read for residents and fellows training in nuclear medicine.” (Arash Eftekhari, Radiology, Vol. 275 (2), May, 2015)

“Each chapter is accompanied by a complete and up to date bibliography, and highlights the advantages and limits of combined SPECT/CT in each indication. … Thanks to the simple language used by the authors, it should be a valuable addition to university, hospital and personal libraries. In our opinion the book is very useful and it will promote a better understanding and an improved utilization of this new technique for the benefit of patients.” (Sara M. d. A. Giorgio and Luigi Mansi, European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, Vol. 41, 2014)
