This book contains the original manuscripts, with summaries and diagnostic flow-charts, of speakers of the EANM 2001 post-congress meeting held in Capri, Italy, which examined management issues of patients with inflammatory bowel diseases, orthopaedic infections, vascular prosthesis infection, FUO and endocarditis, rheumatoid arthritis, and neurological infections. Nuclear medicine doctors attended together with radiologists and clinical specialists from different fields (gastroenterologists, orthopaedics, vascular surgeons, internal medicine doctors, rheumatologists, neurologists). The topics discussed in the book are of great importance for clinicians, nuclear medicine doctors and radiologists. At the end of each chapter, the commonly agreed diagnostic flow-charts for the management of patients with inflammation/infection are published.
