Reviews

The book is designed to provide a comprehensive review of the literature and critically assess the strengths and weaknesses of PET-CT and PET-MR imaging in the realm of neurology. ... the book may be appropriate for neurologists who are constantly exposed to these imaging techniques ... . This is a very in-depth discussion of the use of PET-CT and PET-MRI in the evaluation of patients with suspected neurological conditions. (Tara Catanzano, Doody's Book Reviews, September, 2016)
