About this book

This interdisciplinary book is one of the first practical guides to imaging children with PET. Heavily illustrated, the book provides the reader with key information on technical and clinical issues specific to pediatric PET imaging. Special considerations regarding radiation dosage and sedation, principles of operation, instrumentation, and nuclear medicine regulations are discussed. Subsequent sections present diseases and clinical applications of PET in pediatrics. The discussions are based an exhaustive review of pediatric PET studies by Martin Charron, MD, and a select group of leading international authorities. The scope of pathologies addressed is extensive. Applications in oncology, neurology, psychiatry and other fields are outlined. Future research applications are offered as well. The book not only covers dedicated PET imaging, but also integrates coincidence imaging, PET/CT, and PET/MR. This thorough text is a vital aid to nuclear medicine physicians, radiologists, and oncologists seeking to successfully apply recent innovations in pediatric PET imaging.

Reviews

From the reviews:

Detailed descriptions of many high-quality images are well integrated into the main text, adding value to the book as educational resource. … The practical approach to the complexities of paediatric PET imaging makes this book a valuable reference for full-time paediatric nuclear physicians and radiologists. … The combined efforts of the editor and authors have produced a much-needed book that will be equally useful to experienced professionals and residents approaching the field of paediatric oncology." (Pietro Zucchetta and Luigi Mansi, European Journal of Nuclear Medicine & Molecular Imaging, Vol. 34, 2007)
