Pediatric PET Imaging
Hardcover. 575 pages. Dimensions: 9.9in. x 7.3in. x 1.1in.Positron emission tomography (PET) has been at the forefront of fu- tional and molecular imaging for a number of years. The future of di- nostic imaging depends upon the ability to change from imaging anatomy to examining the processes at work in the body. The fact that there are now monographs examining particular aspects of PET, such as this book on the examination of children, speaks to the newly won maturity of PET. The authors are to be congratulated for the timely appearance of this volume. In recent years, PET has transformed the contributions of nuclear medicine to the diagnosis, staging, and follow-up of patients with cancer. Children with cancer deserve the very best and most comp- sionate care that society can provide. Ultimately the greatest comp- sion we can offer as physicians is to provide the best possible care. Those charged with creating public policy in the context of diagnostic medicine must make common cause with physicians and other sci- tists to ensure that that best possible care is realized at the bedside. All of the evidence suggests that PET is central to such optimal cancer care. In addition to the distinguished cast of physicians and researchers who contributed to this book, I welcome the contributions from te- nologists who are a key part of the interaction between the diagnostic process and the sick or potentially sick child. Good care is contingent upon putting parents and child at ease, and the technologist has a lead role in this. This item ships from multiple locations.

About this title:
The technique for successfully completing a PET procedure is complex and involves a knowledge of physics, pharmacy, anatomy, physiology, and the disease process; applying PET scanning to children is even more challenging and technically demanding. One cannot simply adopt the approach used for adults but instead must receive specialized training in order to master pediatric PET procedures. This one-of-a-kind, interdisciplinary book is one of the first practical guides to imaging children with PET.
The text opens with a section that focuses on practical and technical issues of pediatric PET imaging, including radiation dose and sedation. Principles of operation, instrumentation, and nuclear medicine regulations are also discussed. Subsequent sections cover the clinical applications of PET in pediatrics. With contributions from leading international authorities in the field, each chapter is heavily illustrated and provides the reader with extensive coverage of the essentials of clinical PET studies in oncology and neurology, which standout as key areas for PET imaging in pediatrics.
