Functional Cerebral SPECT and PET Imaging aims at providing useful information to the clinician.
After four introductory chapters, the book addresses the potential clinical indications for SPECT/PET separately.
The next six chapters offer cases for cerebrovascular disorders, dementias, seizures, trauma, psychiatric disorders, and tumors; to the last chapter, activation and some special cases were attached.
Each topic/indication is preceded by a concise clinical and imaging review, with a literature review up to 1998 (plus a few from 1999).
It continues with a number of case reports didactically set with clinical presentation and correlative imaging, the SPECT or PET study, with findings and comments, and a useful “teaching point” for most of the cases.
It is a successful presentation of most of the cases, which makes the book attractive.
