PET-CT: A Case Based Approach
Dr. Peter S. Conti is a Professor of Radiology and the Director of the PET Imaging Science Center at the University of Southern California, and is a Fellow of both the American College of Radiology and American College of Nuclear Physicians. He is a pioneer in the development of the clinical applications of PET and more recently PET-CT. He and one of his fellows, Dr. Daniel Cham, have published this groundbreaking PET-CT case-based book, which reveals how PET-CT can be applied in routine clinical scenarios. Leading authorities in the field examine a wealth of heavily-illustrated original PET-CT cases that showcase both common and uncommon cancers, and the latest PET-CT applications for neurological and cardiovascular disorders. Correlative three-dimensional cross-sectional PET and CT images highlight pathological findings. Each of the clinical applications is accompanied by a concise explanation of the patient history and interpretation of the PET-CT study. Insightful discussions and "pearls and pitfalls" are included to assist in a better understanding of pathology, diagnosis, and imaging approaches. Readers also find important coverage of pathophysiology and technical artifacts. This unique book is ideal for nuclear medicine practitioners, radiologists, and residents, as well as referring clinicians interested in learning more about how this new medical imaging technology can be applied in their patient populations.This unique book is ideal for nuclear medicine practitioners, nuclear medicine residents, and clinicians interested in medical imaging for tumor patients.
