This new project on PET-MR imaging in oncology includes digital
interactive software matching the cases in the book. The
interactive version of the atlas is based on the latest web
standard, HTML5, ensuring compatibility with any computer operating
system as well as a dedicated version for Apple iPad.
The book opens with an introduction to the principles of hybrid
imaging that pays particular attention to PET/MR imaging and
standard PET/MR acquisition protocols. A wide range of illustrated
clinical case reports are then presented. Each case study includes
a short clinical history, findings, and teaching points, followed
by illustrations, legends, and comments.
The multimedia version of the book includes dynamic movies that
allow the reader to browse through series of rotating 3D images
(MIP or volume rendered), display blending between PET and MR, and
dynamic visualization of 3D image volumes. The movies can be played
either continuously or sequentially for better exploration of sets
The editors of this state-of-the-art publication are key opinion
leaders in the field of multimodality imaging. Professor Osman
Ratib (Geneva) and Professor Markus Schwaiger (Munich) were the
first in Europe to initiate the clinical adoption of PET/MR
imaging. Professor Thomas Beyer (Zurich) is an internationally
renowned pioneering physicist in the field of hybrid imaging.
Individual clinical cases presented in this book are co-authored by
leading international radiologists and nuclear physicians experts
in the use of PET and MRI.
