Add your own review!

Overview

In this book, experts from premier institutions across the world with extensive experience in the field clearly and succinctly describe the current and anticipated uses of PET/MRI in oncology. The book also includes detailed presentations of the MRI and PET technologies as they apply to the combined PET/MRI scanners. The applications of PET/MRI in a wide range of oncological settings are well documented, highlighting characteristic findings, advantages of this dual-modality technique, and pitfalls. Whole-body PET/MRI applications and pediatric oncology are discussed separately. In addition, information is provided on PET technology designs and MR hardware for PET/MRI, MR pulse sequences and contrast agents, attenuation and motion correction, the reliability of standardized uptake value measurements, and safety considerations. The balanced presentation of clinical topics and technical aspects will ensure that the book is of wide appeal. It will serve as a reference for specialists in nuclear medicine and radiology and oncologists and will also be of interest for residents in these fields and technologists.

Reviews

This textbook represents a timely and succinct summary of the current scientific and clinical experience by a panel of world-leading experts on this topic to date. The book is compact and well-balanced. ... All the chapters are well-referenced. They are written in language that is unassuming and can be easily understood regardless of its readers' professional background ... . I would strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in the subject. (Simon Wan, RAD Magazine, August, 2018) It would be an asset to any training clinician in the core medical and surgical specialties who intends to pursue a career in oncology and haematology. It will be of particular benefit to training clinical and medical oncologists, who will find this book a useful reference for their future practice. (Andy Scarsbrook, British Journal of Hospital Medicine, Vol. 19 (6), June, 2018)
