This pocket book provides up-to-date descriptions of the most relevant features of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) and the imaging modalities currently available to assist specialists (clinicians, pathologists, radiologists, nuclear medicine physicians) in selecting optimal patient management based on interdisciplinary collaboration. As the title indicates, the focus is particularly on PET/CT, with coverage of basic principles, the available radiopharmaceuticals, indications, typical and atypical appearances, normal variants and artifacts, advantages, limitations, and pitfalls. In addition, succinct information is provided on the use of other imaging modalities, including SPECT, CT, and MRI, and on pathology and treatment options. Imaging teaching cases are presented, and key points are highlighted throughout. The book is published as part of a series on hybrid imaging that is specifically aimed at referring clinicians, nuclear medicine/radiology physicians, radiographers/technologists, and nurses who routinely work in nuclear medicine and participate in multidisciplinary meetings.

Editorial Reviews

"This volume provides a succinct summary of the current status of neuroendocrine malignancy, with a particular focus on PETCT imaging techniques. . The book is likely to be of most interest to clinicians involved in the management of this diverse patient group that includes oncologists, nurses, pathologists, surgeons, radiographers/technologists, radiologists and nuclear medicine physicians. An ideal use is as a quick reference guide both in preparation for and at multidisciplinary meetings." (Dr. Andy Scarsbrook, RAD Magazine, January, 2017)"The book is mainly directed to all clinicians interested in the role of nuclear medicine in patients with NETs. Residents and practitioners in nuclear medicine and radiology may also find this book interesting and useful for improving their understanding of the potential of nuclear medicine in patients affected with these tumours and then for explaining this to their referrers." (Manuela Amato and Luigi Mansi, European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, Vol. 44, 2017)"The intended audience includes anyone involved in the multidisciplinary approach to diagnosis and management of patients with neuroendocrine tumors. This includes nuclear medicine physicians, radiologists, technologists, and pathologists, as well as clinical specialists such as oncologists, endocrinologists, and surgeons. . This is a quick read, but it does not fall short in providing a concise, up-to-date overview of the utility of nuclear medicine, particularly PET/CT, for imaging NETs."
