MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

The diagnostic and therapeutic achievements in radiopharmaceuticals and nuclear medicine instrumentation – PET, SPECT, MR, CT and their hypbrids PET-CT and SPECT-CT – are the result of the interdisciplinary research efforts of cell-biologists, chemists, pharmacologists, physicists, computer-scientists, engineers, nuclear medicine physicians, and oncologists. The clinical implications of these achievements have made nuclear medicine indispensable in the management of cancer. This superbly illustrated text on modern nuclear medicine applications in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer describes the state of the art and the current position of nuclear medicine in the light of these recent developments. It is intended as a valuable update also for non-nuclear medicine specialists working in oncology. Nuclear medicine as part of molecular imaging and therapy has changed radically in the last decade. The growing importance and clinical impact of these changes in the near future has impelled the internationally renowned editors and contributors to put them on record in Advances in Nuclear Oncology.
