About this book


Cardiac PET and hybrid PET/CT have revolutionized the field of cardiovascular imaging and offer new options for diagnosis and management of patients with cardiac conditions. Cardiologists, radiologists, and nuclear medicine specialists must have an up-to-date reference in this rapidly changing field in order to most effectively utilize new technology in practice. Cardiac PET and PET/CT Imaging takes a step-by-step approach to PET and PET/CT instrumentation, imaging, and protocols. Beginning with imaging fundamentals and progressing through advanced discussion of specific applications, this book is a comprehensive source of cardiac PET and PET/CT information. Sections written by and for technologists as well as discussion of MRI and other imaging modalities add to the well-rounded scope of this book. A library of original cases and several hundred illustrations, many in color, complete the text by highlighting interpretation and technical challenges in cardiac PET and PET/CT.
