about

Although [18F]fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) generally shows an excellent performance as a cancer-imaging agent when using PET-CT, there are some settings in which other radiopharmaceuticals offer advantages. Such non-FDG tracers are now gaining widespread acceptance not only in research but also in clinical practice. This atlas, including about 500 high-quality images, is a user-friendly guide to PET-CT imaging beyond FDG. A wide range of tracers is covered, such as 18F- and 11C-choline, 11C-methionine, 18F-ethyl-L-tyrosine, 68Ga-DOTA-NOC, 11C-acetate, 11C-thymidine, and 18F-DOPA. Throughout, the emphasis is on image interpretation, with guidance on the recognition of normal, benign, and malignant uptake and clear instruction on learning points and pitfalls. This atlas is designed to serve as a reference text for both nuclear physicians and radiologists, and will also be of great benefit to radiographers, technologists, and nuclear medicine and radiology residents.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The atlas currently reviewed keeps a fresh though incisive approach to different PET/CT tracers that are gaining interest in routine clinical practice . . This user-friendly atlas is not only helpful for young nuclear medicine physicians getting acquainted with new tracers, but also for more experienced colleagues needing a reference or searching for a focused analysis of non-FDG tracers. . It offers useful background to build up the 'personal atlas' of professional experience: a book that should be available in university libraries and reporting rooms."­­­ (Giovanna Pepe and Arturo Chiti, European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, Vol. 37, 2010)
