Clinicians’ Guides to Radionuclide Hybrid Imaging


Hybrid imaging with PET/CT and SPECT/CT provides high-quality information on function and structure, thereby permitting accurate localization, characterization, and diagnosis. There is extensive evidence to support the value of PET/CT, which has made a significant impact on oncological imaging and the management of patients with cancer. The evidence in favor of SPECT/CT, especially for orthopaedic indications, is evolving and increasing. This pocket book series on hybrid imaging (PET/CT and SPECT/CT) is specifically aimed at referring clinicians, nuclear medicine/radiology physicians, radiographers/technologists, and nurses who routinely work in nuclear medicine and participate in multidisciplinary meetings. The series will include 14 pocket books on PET/CT and 6 on SPECT/CT. Compiled under the auspices of the British Nuclear Medicine Society, the series is the joint work of many colleagues and professionals worldwide who share a common vision and purpose in promoting and supporting nuclear medicine as an important imaging specialty for the diagnosis and management of oncological and non-oncological conditions.

The PET/CT pocket book series will be dedicated to some of the Society's recently departed peers, including Prof Ignac Fogelman, Dr Muriel Buxton-Thomas and Prof Ajit K Padhy
