About this book

PET and SPECT in Psychiatry showcases the combined expertise of renowned authors whose dedication to the investigation of psychiatric disease through nuclear medicine technology has achieved international recognition. The classical psychiatric disorders as well as other subjects – such as suicide, sleep, eating disorders, and autism – are discussed and the latest results in functional neuroimaging are detailed. Most chapters are written jointly by a clinical psychiatrist and a nuclear medicine expert to ensure a multidisciplinary approach. This state of the art compendium will be valuable to all who have an interest in the field of neuroscience, from the psychiatrist and the radiologist/nuclear medicine specialist to the interested general practitioner and cognitive psychologist. It is the first volume of a trilogy on PET and SPECT imaging in the neurosciences; other volumes will focus on PET and SPECT in neurology and PET and SPECT of neurobiological systems.

Reviews

“This book is part of a trilogy that deals with the applications of PET and SPECT in neurosciences … . We strongly recommend this book to … those working in neuroscience, such as psychiatrists, neurologists, geriatricians, nuclear physicians, neuroradiologists and psychologists. The book may also appeal and be useful to general practitioners, basic researchers and others. … should be available in all university libraries to act as bait to attract brilliant young minds to the field of neuroimaging.” (Gianluca De Matteis and Luigi Mansi, European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, Vol. 42, 2015)
