A Case-Based Approach to PET/CT in Oncology describes the role of PET/CT in the diagnosis, staging and monitoring of treatment response in today's practice of oncology. It provides a detailed analysis of over 100 cases occurring in daily clinical practice, emphasizing the central role that PET imaging plays in the care of cancer patients. The text is organized into two sections; Part I guides the reader through general introductory concepts, including basic science, while Part II covers in-depth oncologic applications. Each case is illustrated throughout with full color images and explains the key management issues and the advantages and limitations of the modality. Written by a team of renowned international experts, A Case-Based Approach to PET/CT in Oncology is an invaluable resource for all imaging practitioners, oncologists and nuclear medicine specialists.
