About this book

In compiling this textbook on the exciting novel imaging modality of PET/MRI, the editors have brought together a truly international group of experts in the field. The book is divided into two parts. The first part covers methodology and equipment and includes chapters on basic molecular medicine, contrast agents, MR attenuation and validation, and quantitative MRI and PET motion correction. The second part of the book focuses on clinical applications in oncology, cardiology, and neurology. Imaging of major neoplasms is covered in a series of individual chapters. Further chapters address functional and metabolic cardiovascular examinations and major central nervous system applications such as brain tumors and dementias. This book will be of interest to all radiologists and nuclear medicine physicians who wish to learn more about the latest developments in this important emerging imaging modality and its applications.

Reviews

“This is a breakthrough in combined imaging modalities covering the usage of PET with more traditional approaches to organ system pathology and diagnosis. … This work is one of the best for advanced nuclear medicine and CNS PET scientists. I highly recommend it to students, residents, medical physicists, and radiologists with an interest in diagnosis using the PET and fusion technologies.” (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, July, 2015)

“This book’s international cohort of authors and editors from both sides of the Atlantic have successfully managed to share their experience by succinctly outlining the current status of this robust multimodality imaging technology in a easy to read, illustrated and relevant manner. … It is an essential read for all those medical professionals … who are interested in exploring this new hybrid multimodality gadget and its associated penumbra.” (Zia Sand, RAD Magazine, March, 2015)
