BeschreibungThis book is designed to give the reader a solid understanding of the physics and instrumentation aspects of PET, including how PET data are collected and formed into an image. Topics include basic physics, detector technology used in modern PET scanners, data acquisition, and 3D reconstruction. A variety of modern PET imaging systems are also discussed, including those designed for clinical services and research, as well as small-animal imaging. Methods for evaluating the performance of these systems are also outlined. The book will interest nuclear medicine students, nuclear medicine physicians, and technologists.

PressestimmenFrom the reviews:
"This book is intended as a handbook on the principles of PET imaging, proceeding from the basic physics behind positron emission through to the techniques of analysis of PET images. ... In summary, we think this book will be extremely valuable reading both for nuclear medicine physicians, who will find it useful in refreshing knowledge of basic concepts and as a quick reference, and for technicians and residents who are starting their work on PET." (Mario Quarantelli and Anna Prinster, European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, Vol. 34, 2007)
