About this book

Introduction

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.
