About this book

Introduction

This pioneering book, now in its fourth edition, presents the cutting-edge developments in pediatric nuclear medicine. Thoroughly revised and updated, it retains the fundamentals that anchor the book’s distinguished reputation and includes the latest advances in PET/CT, SPECT, hybrid imaging, and molecular imaging. Pediatric Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, Fourth Edition, is an excellent resource for nuclear medicine physicians, diagnostic radiologists, pediatricians, and residents and fellows.

The Fourth Edition features:

· 16 new chapters, including PET and PET/CT in Children and Young Adults; Lymphoscintigraphy; Skeletal Scintigraphy; Neuroblastoma; Lymphomas and Lymphoproliferative Disorders; Functional Imaging of Pediatric Musculoskeletal Tumors; Solid Tumors in Childhood; Pediatric Molecular Imaging; Combined PET/MRI in Childhood; Radiation Exposures; Radiation Protection in Pediatric Nuclear Medicine; and Dose Optimization in Pediatric Nuclear Medicine.

· Discussion of the use of image fusion and hybrid imaging in children.

· Strategies for communicating potential radiation risk to patients, families and members of the healthcare team.

· Methods to optimize pediatric radiopharmaceutical administered doses and improve image quality.

S. Ted Treves, MD, is Professor of Radiology at Harvard Medical School, Founder and Former Chief, Division of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, Children’s Hospital Boston (1970-2011). In 2013, he received the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging’s Georg Charles de Hevesy Nuclear Pioneer Award for outstanding contributions to the field of Nuclear Medicine.
