Description

Edited by Dominique Delbeke and Ora Israel, two leading authorities in the field of nuclear medicine, this practical guide is a reference source of cases for images obtained on state-of-the-art integrated PET/CT and SPECT/CT imaging systems. The cases are presented in-depth so that they will be of value to residents training in nuclear medicine and radiology and to nuclear medicine physicians and radiologists who need to become familiar with this technology. Internationally recognized contributors provide the reader with in-depth coverage on the technical and clinical aspects of hybrid imaging. Principles of hybrid imaging, physics and instrumentation, normal distribution of radiopharmaceuticals and protocols central to the field are covered. A comprehensive review of nuclear oncology cases found in everyday practice, ranging from simple to complex are also addressed. The full spectrum of clinical applications is covered including head and neck tumors, breast cancer, colorectal cancer, pancreatic cancer, and genitourinary tumors. Additional chapters examine cardiac hybrid imaging, benign bone diseases and infection and inflammation. A wealth of illustrations reinforce the key teaching points discussed throughout the book.show more

Back cover copy

"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.show more
