Atlas of PET/CT with SPECT / CT with DVD
This state-of-the-art, lavishly illustrated atlas is your visual guide to fusion imaging of all parts of the body. It combines CT with molecular imaging modalities such as PET and SPECT, resulting in significantly enhanced resolution of tumors and other disease processes that give you a unique view into their diagnosis, localization, and spread. Edited by the pioneers of fusion imaging, this new resource will help you more accurately diagnose and effectively guide treatment of human malignancies, including head and neck, lung, colon, ovarian, breast, lymphoma, melanoma, and many others, as well as other diseases such as infections.Table of Contents
- Emerging techniques such as PET/CT and SPECT/CT offer better diagnostic accuracy.
- More than 1,000 full-color images help you solve your toughest diagnostic challenges.
- Hundreds of case studies of normal and abnormal findings provided by two leading academic centers in nuclear medicine let you compare your findings with theirs.
- Fusion imaging lets you provide the most appropriate treatment based on your findings.
- Summaries and Key Points boxes for each case assist you in locating key content more easily.
- The accompanying DVD-ROM, which contains many fully navigable PET/CT and SPECT/CT cases for viewing and analysis, with cross-modality image fusion offers exceptional visual guidance. This DVD-ROM uses RAPID Software provided by Hermes Medical Solutions, www.hermesmedical.com.
This is a pictorial atlas aimed at practitioners in hybrid imaging or those interested in developing their skills in these growing techniques. The cases are comprehensive and well thought out. There is a logical progression from normal variants to benign conditions to malignancy. The layout is stylish and the text easy to assimilate. The accompanying DVD is a useful tool. Overall I liked the book and it sits well in our PET/CT Centre and Nuclear Medicine Department.
