Atlas of Hybrid and Molecular Imaging PDF Summary

Atlas of Hybrid and Molecular Imaging is an user friendly guide for interpreting PET and SPECT in relation to co-registered CT and/or MRI. For the first time, in this atlas nuclear physicians and radiologists cover the entire hybrid nuclear medicine (PET/CT, SPECT/CT and PET/MRI), based on their own case studies. The practical structure in two-page unit offers to the reader a navigational tool, based on anatomical districts, with labeled and explained low-dose multiplanar CT or MRI views merged with PET fusion imaging on the right hand and contrast enhanced CT or MRI on the other side. This new format enables rapid identification of hybrid nuclear medicine findings which are now routine at leading medical centers. Each chapter begins with three-dimensional CT and/or MRI views of the evaluated anatomical region, bringing forward sectional tables. Special chapters are also focused on imaging of the heart, brain and lymph nodes. Clinical cases, tricks and pitfalls linked to several PET or SPECT radiopharmaceuticals help to introduce the reader to peculiar molecular pathways and to improve confidence in cross-sectional imaging, that is vital for the accurate diagnosis and treatment of diseases. Compact, comprehensive, easy to read guide to sectional imaging and multiplanar evaluation of hybrid PET and SPECT Includes 856 fully colored, labeled, high quality original images of axial, coronal and sagittal CT, contrast enhanced CT, PET/CT and/or PET/MRI Displays 200 clinical cases, showcasing both common and unusual findings that nuclear physicians and radiologists could encounter in their clinical practice Costant orthogonal references on 3D images allow orientation on axial, coronal and sagittal views Peculiar aspects of 17 PET and SPECT radiopharmaceuticals, defined by distinctive color scales Terms and descriptions mostly based on Terminologia Anatomica Specific text boxes explain anatomical variants, radiological advices and physiological findings linked to tracer bio-distribution Supports interpretation and report of hybrid nuclear medicine scans For professionals and vocationals
