The field of nuclear medicine has evolved rapidly in recent years, and one very important aspect of this progress has been the introduction of hybrid imaging systems. PET-CT has already gained widespread acceptance in many clinical settings, especially within oncology, and now SPECT-CT promises to emulate its success. Useful applications of this new approach have been identified not only in oncology but also in endocrinology, cardiology, internal medicine, and other specialties. This atlas, which includes hundreds of high-quality images, is a user-friendly guide to the optimal use and interpretation of SPECT-CT. The full range of potential SPECT-CT applications in clinical routine is considered and assessed by acknowledged experts. The book is designed to serve as a reference text for both nuclear physicians and radiologists; it will also provide fundamental support for radiographers, technologists, and nuclear medicine and radiology residents.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"It is a well written text which is easy to read and is full of useful information. . The book is . simple to follow. It would be suitable for all those involved in nuclear medicine at all levels of experience. It is an excellent introduction for those starting SPECT-CT or planning to expand their use of the hybrid systems. . it is a teaching aid which is a pleasure to read as a textbook, and to review specific systems through the cases." (Alp Notghi, RAD Magazine, June, 2012)"Aims to offer the reader know-how and up-to-date knowledge on state of the art applications in nuclear medicine . . Text pages are limited to the essential concepts necessary to understand how the system works, and to the explanations necessary to understand what is presented in the images, enriched by a more or less long list of references, suggested readings, and tables. . this atlas-book should be useful to all those who want to gain knowledge and insight into this fascinating new diagnostic tool." (G. Beluffi, La Radiologia Medica, Vol. 117, 2012)
