Hybrid SPECT/CT Imaging in Clinical Practice
edited by Ora Israel

Hybrid SPECT/CT Imaging in Clinical Practice presents recent advances and clinical applications of sequential, single session single-photon emission computed tomography and computed tomography imaging.

Features:

  • Helps physicians precisely define and pinpoint the location of tumors at the time of diagnosis and monitor recurrence before making treatment recommendations
  • Details methods for use of SPECT/CT sentinel lymph node localization in patients with melanoma, breast cancer, and head and neck malignancies
  • Considers the use of SPECT/CT for therapy planning, dosimetry calculations, and outcomes assessment
  • Extensively discusses the incidence, distribution, clinical features, and imaging characteristics of tumors detected by nuclear imaging
  • Studies the capabilities and limitations of dual-imaging systems
  • Tracks advances in the use of small animal metabolic and hybrid imaging for new developments in drug design
