Hybrid PET/CT and SPECT/CT Imaging: A Teaching File
presents a complete book on state-of-the-art integrated PET/CT and
SPECT/CT imaging systems. Edited by Drs. Dominique Delbeke and Ora
Israel, this practical guide includes in-depth cases that will advance
the skills of nuclear physicians and radiologists while also preparing
residents for the field of nuclear medicine and radiology.
Internationally-recognized contributors provide the reader with
chapters covering the technical and clinical aspects of hybrid imaging,
including basic principles, physics and instrumentation, the normal
distribution of radiopharmaceuticals, and protocols critical to the
field. A comprehensive review of nuclear oncology cases found in
everyday practice are addressed, including among other clinical
applications head and neck tumors, breast cancer, lung neoplasms,
colorectal cancer, pancreatic cancer, and genitourinary tumors.
Additional chapters examine the use of these modalities in pediatric
patients, benign bone diseases and infection, and cardiac hybrid
imaging. A wealth of illustrations reinforces the key teaching points
discussed throughout the book.
A beneficial feature is the accompanying CD-ROM containing DICOM
images from selected cases showing views in all planes, including the
fusion images, which simulates an actual workstation used in a clinical
scenario. The CD-ROM has been provided by Hermes Medical Solutions, Inc.
