1 Review
Written by leading experts in the field,  Atlas of PET/CT Imaging in Oncology teaches radiologists and nuclear medicine specialists about important aspects of molecular imaging and nuclear medicine specialists about the benefits of anatomic imaging. Thoroughly illustrated throughout (mostly in color), this cutting-edge title consists of a brief didactic portion and an extensive selection of interesting and challenging case examples. A special  feature of the atlas is an interactive CD-ROM that provides the original PET and CT images of each case in selected planes enabling the users to manually adjust the blending intensity of each modality in a fused image -- to see the PET, the CT, and then the PET/CT image. In addition, users can display the clinical history, imaging techniques and diagnostic findings of each case as well as the corresponding specific teaching point. A must for Nuclear Medicine specialists and oncologists alike.
