Using SWOT analysis, this book examines in detail the strengths and weaknesses of the hybrid modalities PET-CT and PET-MRI for imaging of the central nervous system, comparing their merits and evaluating their advantages over the stand-alone modalities. The aim is to employ a truly systematic approach in order to define the potential clinical benefit of these modalities and to identify shortcomings, opportunities, and threats. Clinical application of the modalities is explored in a range of conditions, including dementia and related disorders, movement disorders, psychiatric disorders, cerebrovascular disease, infection/inflammation, brain tumors, and pediatric neurologic disorders. In addition, the basics of hybrid imaging are addressed, covering physics, instrumentation, data analysis and quantitation, radiopharmaceuticals, and contrast media. PET-CT and PET-MRI in Neurology, written by experts from Europe and the United States, will be essential reading for imaging specialists and of value for neurologists, psychiatrists, neurosurgeons, and pediatricians.
Andrea Ciarmiello, who is board certified in both Radiology and Nuclear Medicine, is Professor and Director of the Imaging Department at S. Andrea Hospital, La Spezia, Italy. Professor Ciarmiello is Editor in Chief of theJournal of Diagnostic Imaging in Therapy, Associate Editor ofCurrent Radiopharmaceuticals, and an editorial board me...

Editorial Reviews

"The book offers a balanced guide outlining the extent of challenges faced with utility of hybrid imaging as a combined modality alongside highlighting strengths and weakness of individual modalities . and its associated penumbra. It is an essential read for all neuroscience affiliated medical professionals who are currently catering hybrid molecular imaging at their institutions and equally for those who are interested in exploring and consider introducing these cutting-edge hybrid technologies at their respective centres in future." (Dr. Zia Saad, RAD Magazine, July, 2017) "The book applies SWOT analysis to the evaluation of the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats of hybrid methods. . Overall the chapters are of high quality and well written. ... The book is mainly addressed to neurologists but also to students, and other clinical specialists. We recommend this book to neurologists, nuclear physicians, radiologists and residents interested in the topic." (Georges El Fakhri, European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, Vol. 44, 2017)"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)
