Pet-Ct: A Case Based Approach


Add your own review!

Overview

The PET Imaging Science Center at the University of Southern California is recognized as one of the premier PET centers. The director, Dr. Peter Conti, is a distinguished leader in the field. He and one of his top nuclear medicine fellows, Dr. Daniel Cham, have published one of the first PET-CT case based books. The text is heavily illustrated with original PET-CT images of both common and uncommon cancer cases. Each of the clinical applications is accompanied by a concise explanation of the history, findings, and impression of the PET-CT case. Insightful discussions and pearls and pitfalls are included to help physicians gain a better understanding of pathology, diagnosis, and imaging techniques. The reader also finds sections on physiology, technical artifacts, and applications for neurological and cardiovascular disorders. This unique book is ideal for nuclear medicine practitioners, nuclear medicine residents, and clinicians interested in medical imaging.

Reviews

From the reviews: <p> The editors of this timely volume have got together a group of contributors and produced a highly educational resource for the practising radiologist. All types of cancer are covered, including excellent sections on the brain, gynaecological malignancies, oesophageal cancer, lung tumours etc. The production of the book is excellent with excellent layout and beautiful, high quality images throughout. The pearls and pitfalls sections in each case are particularly useful, as is the discussion. I have found reading this book an invaluable introduction to this new clinical tool. It should be required reading for all who are embarking on clinical practice in this area and also for others who are interested in its application in oncology. The textbook deserves to be a success and a standard introductory textbook in this field. (RAD Magazine, September, 2005) <p> This book a ] is extremely timely, given the great success and rapid diffusion of PET-CT. a ] The authors, supported by numerous qualified co-workers, have used their considerable experience in the performance and interpretation of PET-CT a ] . The entire field of application, from the brain to gynaecological pathology, is considered clearly and comprehensively. a ] this book will be of value not only to beginners and/or residents but also to experts a ] . (U. P. Guerra and L. Mansi, European Journal for Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, Vol. 33, 2006) <p> This is an up to the minute text demonstrating state of the art dedicated PET-CT studies. a ] The book is extremely well presented. a ] There are 472 illustrations a ] . these figures are of an excellent standard and make this an enjoyable andvaluable text. a ] The book is well indexed and easy to navigate. a ] The case study formula is well designed and makes this textbook a pleasurable book to a ~dipa (TM) into a ] . this is a delightful book of PET-CT case studies. (Kevin Bradley, Neuroradiology, Vol. 47 (11), 2005) <p> The book is organized in a a ~case-baseda (TM) format with the intention of providing clinical examples of state-of-the-art positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET/CT) imaging for all diagnostic PET practitioners (in radiology, nuclear medicine, and oncology), from the novice to the experienced reader. a ] The book is well written and well organized. a ] All practitioners, from novices to experts, would benefit from the variety of cases presented.
