About this book


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.

From the reviews:

“The book comprises 760 pages divided into three sections. … give in a single volume the whole information on all issues concerning hybrid machines, both PET/CT and SPECT/CT. This goal has been substantially reached … . The editorial work by Dominique Delbeke and Ora Israel has produced an easily readable and understandable practical guide for nuclear physicians and radiologists, being also useful for residents and students. This book can also be suggested to referring physicians interested in better understanding the information achievable with hybrid machines.”­­­ (Maria Rosaria Prisco and Luigi Mansi, European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, Vol. 38, 2011)

“Internationally recognized contributors describe the technical and clinical aspects of hybrid PET/CT and SPECT/CT in this book and provide a comprehensive review of nuclear oncology cases found in everyday practice. … I highly recommend this book to nuclear physicians, radiologists, trainees, and those with an interest in hybrid imaging. This book will also be helpful to referring physicians interested in learning more about how this new medical imaging can be applied to their patients.” (E. Edmund Kim, The Journal of Nuclear Medicine, Vol. 51 (9), September, 2010)
