New York/Stuttgart – Positron emission tomography (PET) allows clinicians to image organ function and is especially useful in, locating areas of high metabolism, staging cancer as well as monitoring response to therapy. While medical professionals use computed tomography (CT) to image the anatomy of the body. Together the two form a powerful system that can precisely identify and locate possibly diseased areas. PET/CT: A Clinical Guide, published by Thieme, demonstrates effective imaging techniques for managing patients with cancer, neurologic diseases and cardiovascular disorders. This second edition hands readers the necessary tools to sharpen and shape their assessment skills and improve their  decision making.

 PET/CT technology displays a crystal clear image of both the problem and its location. And according to author Dr. Abass Alavi, Department of Radiology, University of Pennsylvania, “Imaging modalities such as CT are being replaced by PET/CT as an alternate and essential imaging modality.”

 This compact book presents both oncological and nononcological applications for the full range of scenarios frequently encountered in a professional setting. In order to accurately capture the latest developments in the field, every chapter has been fully updated. Other additions include sections on pediatric PET/CT, PET for infection and inflammation and flurodeoxyglucose (FDG) biology.

 Each of the more than 500 high-quality pictures that complement the text, has been specifically selected based on its teaching and educational value. Many of the images in this version of the popular text, including the state-of-the art color PET/CT ones, are new.

 "We hope this new edition will continue to serve as a valuable reference source for both the trainees and the practitioners who are actively involved in utilizing this powerful modality in their daily practice," states author Eugene C. Lin, MD, Department of Radiology, University of Washington.
