BeschreibungThis book presents the most up-to-date information on the practice of cardiac PET and hybrid PET/CT. Each chapter takes a step-by-step approach, from basic principles of instrumentation, imaging, and protocols to advanced discussions of current and future clinical applications. Coverage also includes a perspective on other emerging imaging modalities, such as MRI, and the relative role of each. In addition, the volume details the technical aspects of cardiac PET and PET/CT imaging. A library of original cases completes the text by illustrating interpretation and technical challenges in cardiac PET and hybrid PET/CT.

PressestimmenFrom the reviews:
"Cardiac PET and PET/CT Imaging is a comprehensive, informative, up-to-date, state-ofthe-art textbook on newer cardiac imaging technologies and also provides valuable insight into the future of cardiac imaging. ... Tables and other nonimage figures are well displayed, relevant, and easy to understand. ... the book is a must-have for cardiologists, nuclear medicine physicians, and radiologists involved in cardiac imaging and is useful for readers at all levels, from residents to fellows to medical practitioners. ... will be a useful addition to medical and hospital libraries." (Usha A. Joseph, The Journal of Nuclear Medicine, Vol. 49 (6), June, 2008)
"Cardiac PET and PET/CT Imaging is a comprehensive and clinically oriented up-to-date textbook in cardiac nuclear medicine. ... I found Cardiac PET and PET/CT Imaging to be an excellent, comprehensive, and authoritative cardiac nuclear medicine reference textbook. It is primarily written for clinicians who are involved in the diagnosis and management of patients with heart disease. This book will make a welcome addition to the medical library of any imaging physician who reads cardiac nuclear medicine studies." (Michael J. Blend, Radiology, Vol. 254 (3), March, 2010)
