This pocket book provides clinicians with the necessary information to understand the role of FDG PET/CT in infection and inflammation.

The coverage encompasses a wide range of topics, including the role of PET/CT in pyrexia of unknown origin, vasculitis, autoimmune diseases, prosthetic joint infections, osteomyelitis and diabetic foot, immunodeficiency disease, and vascular graft surgery. The book will be a very useful guide to a great test that can provide significant assistance in patient management.

Reviews

The first highlight of this book, a trait common to other entries in the series and a unique selling point, is how international it is. ... this is another great entry in a fantastic series that is more and more aimed at all healthcare professionals working in nuclear medicine and PETCT such as technologists and radiographers, nurses, physicists and other allied healthcare professionals, as well as the clinicians in the series title (both referring clinicians and specialists). (Andre Nunes, RAD Magazine, July, 2019)
