About this book

PET and SPECT in Neurology highlight the combined expertise of renowned authors whose dedication to the investigation of neurological disorders through nuclear medicine technology has achieved international recognition. Classical neurodegenerative disorders are discussed as well as cerebrovascular disorders, brain tumors, epilepsy, head trauma, coma, sleeping disorders and inflammatory and infectious diseases of the CNS. The latest results in nuclear brain imaging are detailed. Most chapters are written jointly by a clinical neurologist and a nuclear medicine specialist to ensure a multidisciplinary approach. This state-of-the-art compendium will be valuable not only to neurologists and radiologists/nuclear medicine specialists but also to interested general practitioners and geriatricians. It is the second volume of a trilogy on PET and SPECT imaging in the neurosciences, the other volumes covering PET and SPECT in psychiatry and in neurobiological systems.

Reviews

“Essential reading for all those who are interested to the role of nuclear medicine in neurology, and more generally in neuroimaging. … this voluminous and up to date publication can be regarded as an encyclopaedia that could have a prominent position in the libraries of all departments involved in neurosciences generally, not only in neuroimaging. … Clearly residents and professionals in nuclear medicine, as well as those involved in neuroimaging, will find this book of interest.” (Christian Marsiglia and Luigi Mansi, European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, Vol. 43, 2016)
