About this Item

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. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9780387288369

Synopsis:

Positron emission tomography (PET) has been at the forefront of fu- tional and molecular imaging for a number of years.

From the Back Cover:

This interdisciplinary book is one of the first practical guides to imaging children with PET. Heavily illustrated, the book provides the reader with key information on technical and clinical issues specific to pediatric PET imaging. Special considerations regarding radiation dosage and sedation, principles of operation, instrumentation, and nuclear medicine regulations are discussed. Subsequent sections present diseases and clinical applications of PET in pediatrics. The discussions are based an exhaustive review of pediatric PET studies by Martin Charron, MD, and a select group of leading international authorities. The scope of pathologies addressed is extensive. Applications in oncology, neurology, psychiatry and other fields are outlined. Future research applications are offered as well. The book not only covers dedicated PET imaging, but also integrates coincidence imaging, PET/CT, and PET/MR. This thorough text is a vital aid to nuclear medicine physicians, radiologists, and oncologists seeking to successfully apply recent innovations in pediatric PET imaging.
