MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

This book is designed to give the reader a solid understanding of the


physics and instrumentation aspects of PET, including how PET data are collected and formed into an image. Topics include basic physics, detector technology used in modern PET scanners, data acquisition, and 3D reconstruction. A variety of modern PET imaging systems are also discussed, including those designed for clinical services and research, as well as small-animal imaging. Methods for evaluating the performance of these systems are also outlined. The book will interest nuclear medicine students, nuclear medicine physicians, and technologists.


Feature:

Edited by Michael E. Phelps, PhD, innovator in PET


Written by Simon R. Cherry, PhD, world authority on small-animal scanners, and Magnus Dahlbom, PhD


Presents fundamentals of PET physics and instrumentation


Back cover:

Derived from the critically acclaimed reference PET: Molecular Imaging and Its Biological Applications, edited by Michael E. Phelps, Ph.D., this handbook provides a clear and concise introduction to the physics and instrumentation aspects of PET imaging. Comprised of select material from the parent volume, this book is gives the reader a solid understanding of PET fundamentals, including how PET data are collected and formed into an image. Other topics include basic physics, detector technology used in modern PET scanners, data acquisition, 3-D reconstruction, and methods for evaluating the performance of PET systems. A variety of modern PET imaging systems is discussed, ranging from those designed for clinical services and research to those used in small-animal imaging. As the importance of PET imaging in nuclear medicine and radiology grows, the need for a reliable resource increases. PET: Physics, Instrumentation, and Scanners is a handy guide to this important field.
