About this book


PET in Clinical Oncology describes the use of Positron Emission Tomography (PET) in the diagnosis and management of malignant tumors. Experts from Germany and the United States present basics, technical details, and clinical aspects for both standard and new PET techniques. The book illustrates the importance of PET in comparison to other imaging techniques.
Generously supplemented with charts, tables, and illustrations, each chapter provides the reader with well-delineated descriptions, from the basic technical situation through the clinical use of PET. This book is helpful to all those dealing with the diagnosis and therapy of cancer.
