Practical FDG Imaging provides the reader with a reference source of cases with FDG images obtained both on dedicated PET tomographs and hybrid scintillation cameras. The cases are presented in thorough depth so that they are of value to both specialists and residents in training who need to learn the indications and interpretations of FDG images and the advantages and limitations of hybrid scintillation cameras compared with dedicated PET tomographs. This book is ideal for nuclear and radiology medicine residents, as well as those practitioners who need to become familiar with this technology. The first part of the book concentrates on the technical aspects of FDG imaging. Part two is devoted to the clinical applications in the fields of neurology, cardiology and oncology.

From the reviews:

"This book is a practical comprehensive reference of cases with FDG images . international outstanding experts provide the reader with in-depth coverage on all aspects of PET/FDG imaging. Nuclear medicine physicians, radiologists, oncologists, nuclear medicine residents, radiology residents will all benefit from having this book in their hands as a reference for building confidence in PET images interpretation. The cases are really representative icons for those who need to start learning the indications and interpretations of FDG images." (G. Lucignani, The Quarterly Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, Vol. 48 (1), March, 2004)

"This is an excellent introduction and reference book on FDG-PET imaging for the nuclear medicine physician, radiologist, oncologist, neurologist, neurosurgeon and cardiologist. It can be strongly recommended." (Anders Sundin, Acta Radiologica, Vol. 44 (5), 2003)

"The book is unique in several respects. First of all, it is current. Both camera-based and dedicated PET scans and examples as well as normal variants in frequently found imaging artifacts are discussed. The presented cases are of value both to the specialist physician and to the resident in training who needs to learn about indication and interpretation of FDG images. In summary, the authors have provided an instructive textbook on the use of FDG imaging." (T.J. Vogl, European Radiology, Vol. 13 (6), 2003)

"This is a 398 page hardcover written by authors, most of whom are well recognized in the PET field. Overall, this is an excellent book, which will suit persons working in the field or those practitioners seeking to supplement their experience. it comprehensively portrays the spectrum of disorders and pitfalls likely to confront the physician or registrar. The textbook would be a useful addition to the library of all teaching departments as well as those facilities offering a PET service." (George Larcos, ANZ Nuclear Medicine, Vol. 34 (1), 2003)

"I consider this book a book for physicians primarily those who are engaged in the management of patients with cancer. the basic science chapters are practical and concise. It is therefore of value for nuclear medicine physicians and radiologists, and the internist/oncologist will find image correlations which are often unavailable in other literature. For the imaging specialist, the text gives a good idea of which information the referring physician needs to know. A book which I recommend!" (E.K.J. Pauwels, European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, Vol. 29 (11), 2002)

This practical guide is a comprehensive reference of cases with FDG images obtained on dedicated PET tomographs and hybrid scintillation gamma cameras. Dr. Dominique Delbeke and her collegues at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, along with recognized international experts, provide the reader with in-depth coverage on all aspects of FDG imaging. Unique to this book is the up-to-date coverage on both the technical and clinical aspects of FDG imaging and its cases of those malignancies practitioners are likey to encounter in their daily practice. The text also presents normal and physiologic interpretation of FDG imaging, related pitfalls in imaging interpretation, and the role of FDG imaging in different types of body tumors. Enhanced with over 300 FDG images, this book will serve as an excellent stand-alone guide for nuclear medicine physicians, radiologists, oncologists, and residents in their practice of clinical PET.
