Atlas of Clinical Positron Emission Tomography by Sally Barrington

By Sally Barrington

Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is now firmly confirmed as a useful procedure for diagnosing and tracking illness. the second one version of this accomplished medical atlas will proceed to give the mixed adventure of 2 of the world's prime puppy centres because the process has moved on from its adolescence to realize confirmed price in scientific perform. The publication has been considerably rewritten

Part One presents an outstanding creation to the technological know-how and perform of puppy and screens basic editions and discusses capability pitfalls. partially , the functions of PET/CT in oncology are coated intimately, based on physique method so as in their scientific value. half 3 examines the functions of PET/CT past oncology; in neuropsychiatry, cardiology and infection.

A important extra function is the accompanying DVD-Rom with HERMES swift software program, which incorporates PET/CT situations for viewing and research, with cross-modality photograph fusion, and has been supplied via Hermes clinical Solutions.

summary: Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is now firmly demonstrated as a useful process for diagnosing and tracking sickness. the second one variation of this complete scientific atlas will proceed to provide the mixed event of 2 of the world's major puppy centres because the process has moved on from its adolescence to realize verified price in scientific perform. The booklet has been considerably rewritten to take account of the interesting advancements which are taking place with the advent of PET/CT, and new state of the art PET/CT photographs are provided. the hot version is still awarded as a chain of 'mini-lectures' rigorously designed for swift assimilation, illustrated by way of case histories during which top quality illustrations are supplemented through transparent concise educating issues and instructions for additional reading.

Part One presents a great creation to the technology and perform of puppy and monitors common editions and discusses capability pitfalls. partly , the functions of PET/CT in oncology are coated intimately, in keeping with physique approach so as in their medical significance. half 3 examines the functions of PET/CT past oncology; in neuropsychiatry, cardiology and infection.

A worthy extra characteristic is the accompanying DVD-Rom with HERMES speedy software program, which includes PET/CT situations for viewing and research, with cross-modality picture fusion, and has been supplied by means of Hermes scientific Solutions.

Example text

The proposed treatment position must be exactly reproduced for the PET/CT scan using the various radiotherapy immobilization devices and standard radiotherapy positioning lasers installed in the scanning suite. Usually only a scan of a limited area is required, nevertheless experience so far indicates that great attention must be paid to setting up the patient for the PET/CT scan, making the whole process very time consuming. Brain and heart imaging protocols Brain imaging protocols are straightforward.

Extraction into tissue is rapid over the first 10 minutes until equilibrium with the plasma concentration is achieved, when it start to fall. FDG 6-P accumulates rapidly at first and continues to rise over the next hour or so. At 30 minutes the ratio between trapped and free FDG is about 4:1. The total labeled FDG, as registered by a PET scanner, includes contributions from FDG in tissue and in plasma as well as FDG 6-P. The 2-hour half-life of 18F is well suited to the rate of uptake for FDG and permits acquisition of images at reasonable count rates.

The most difficult thing to learn when first starting to report whole-body FDG scans is appreciating the normal variation which can occur. High uptake of FDG is seen in the brain, approximately 6 percent of administered activity is taken up in brain. Hence some brain metastases such as those from lung cancer may be difficult to distinguish from normal cortical uptake and the sensitivity for detection of metastatic disease in the brain can be low. The myocardium also accumulates FDG, although uptake is lower in the fasted than the fed state and this is one of the reasons why patients are fasted for 4–6 hours prior to scanning to minimize uptake in normal tissues.
