Positron Emission Tomography Computed Tomography: A Disease-Oriented Approach offers Radiologists and Nuclear Medicine specialists a thorough understanding of the clinical application of PET-CT―a groundbreaking modality that provides a powerful fusion of imaging anatomy and metabolic function.
Written with a disease-oriented approach, PET-CT examines understanding, using, and interpreting PET-CT imaging in clinical practice.
Co-authored by experts in both PET and CT imaging, this text serves as an integrated review of the practical aspects of this new imaging modality while providing comprehensive and evidence-based coverage.
This volume covers all clinical entities for which PET-CT can be utilized in today’s modern practice.
Using an integrated disease-oriented approach, PET-CT reviews:
- the diagnostic settings in which PET-CT will prove most valuable
- literature-based evidence for utility, applications, and limitations to each disease
- integrated discussion of the CT findings that will bear on the PET interpretation and vice versa
- “next steps” in the clinical evaluation of a patient (i.e., additional imaging studies indicated)
