About this book


Small-Animal SPECT Imaging offers a comprehensive overview of the cutting edge imaging tool that can aid in drug development, drug research, molecular imaging, and imaging science. It represents contributions of the world's leading researchers in small-animal SPECT imaging, providing coverage from the basic physics of SPECT imaging to animal studies. Important integrated sections on animal handling, image quality assessment, and reconstruction algorithms are included, allowing its audience to design and run their own studies.

Key Features:

Scintillation and semiconductor detector technologies

Digital signal processing techniques

System modeling and reconstruction algorithms

Animal monitoring and handling, including anesthesia issues

Applications of small-animal imaging

Detailed sections on animal handling, image assessment, and reconstruction algorithms -allow readers to implement their own tailored studies


Small-Animal SPECT Imaging is aimed at researchers performing imaging to study the effects of drugs, molecular agents, and treatments, including molecular imaging scientists, imaging scientists; nuclear medicine researchers, and all those interested in the application of SPECT systems in the areas of cancer research, cardiovascular research, and gene therapy
