About this book

This classic text presents the basic concepts of positron emission tomography (PET). Topics include basic physics of PET imaging; scanning systems; data acquisition; storage  and display; PET radionuclides and radiopharmaceuticals; regulatory policies for PET radiopharmaceuticals; reimbursement for PET procedures; and performance of PET studies. The Third Edition is thoroughly updated and includes information on magnetic resonance scanners; PET/MR imaging; new positron emitting radionuclides with potential for human use; new PET radiopharmaceuticals; FDA and NRC regulations for PET radiopharmaceuticals; and special topics of interest, such as SUV calculation in 18F-FDG tumor imaging. The book also includes equations, sample problems, and practice questions. Basics of PET Imaging, Third Edition, is an ideal resource for nuclear medicine physicians, residents, and technologists.
