About this book


This interdisciplinary book is one of the first practical guides to imaging children with PET. Heavily illustrated, the book provides the reader with key information on technical and clinical issues specific to pediatric PET imaging. Special considerations regarding radiation dosage and sedation, principles of operation, instrumentation, and nuclear medicine regulations are discussed. Subsequent sections present diseases and clinical applications of PET in pediatrics. The discussions are based an exhaustive review of pediatric PET studies by Martin Charron, MD, and a select group of leading international authorities. The scope of pathologies addressed is extensive. Applications in oncology, neurology, psychiatry and other fields are outlined. Future research applications are offered as well. The book not only covers dedicated PET imaging, but also integrates coincidence imaging, PET/CT, and PET/MR. This thorough text is a vital aid to nuclear medicine physicians, radiologists, and oncologists seeking to successfully apply recent innovations in pediatric PET imaging.
