Cardiac SPECT Handbook from C.H.I.P.S.

Clinical Gated Cardiac SPECT
Second edition
edited by Guido Germano

With gated cardiac SPECT now firmly established for the management of the cardiac patient, Clinical Gated Cardiac SPECT brings you up to date with the multiple clinical applications as well as the recent technical developments of the modality.

Features of Clinical Gated Cardiac SPECT, Second edition:

  • covers all the available protocols
  • describes a systematic approach for interpretation and reporting
  • provides guidance for the recognition of artifacts
  • includes flowcharts on the management of patients

The relationship of gated cardiac SPECT to PET, MRI and CT is explored in separate chapters devoted to each modality.
