Product information PET-CT Hybrid Imaging

The essentials of PET-CT fusion technology in one practical, comprehensive volume

Written by a multidisciplinary team of experts in radiology and nuclear medicine, this lavishly illustrated handbook presents an evidence-based look at the most up-to-date image-fusion technology in clinical use today. The authors combine multislice spiral CT anatomic images with specific sensitive molecular images of PET in one examination to give readers a full understanding of this evolving technology.

The book places special emphasis on tumor imaging, with additional chapters on the imaging of inflammatory, cardiovascular, and neurodegenerative diseases. Leading clinicians provide systematic discussion of patient preparation, recommendations for imaging protocols for specific indications, and examination techniques such as slice orientation and positioning. To prepare the reader for daily practice, CT and PET-CT scans appear throughout the text side-by-side with explanations of their interpretation.

Highlights:

  • 616 high-quality images - including 175 in full color - complement the text
  • Easy-to-reference textboxes and sidebars present key concepts, pearls, and pitfalls
  • Detailed summaries at the end of each chapter facilitate rapid review
  • Carefully selected suggestions for further reading at the end of each section
  • A comprehensive glossary of frequently used terms and a list of common abbreviations

Ideal for practicing radiologists, radiologic technologists, and radiology residents, PET-CT Hybrid Imaging is an essential reference for anyone who needs to quickly compare and interpret PET-CT images. It is also an excellent preparation tool for Board examinations.

What is an e-book?

An e-book is an electronic edition of a printed book that is available as a file. The content does not differ from the printed edition of the book. Thieme offers electronic books in PDF and EPUB formats. For both formats, you need software to display the documents on your reading device. This software is not part of the e-book download.

What is the PDF format?
Adobe PDF format (Portable Document Format) is a standard format in MAC/PC area. Free programs for reading a PDF are available for all common operating systems (e.g. Windows, Mac OS, Linux) and for almost all e-book readers such as e-book readers, tablets or smartphones.

What is the EPUB format?
EPUB (electronic publication) is a standard format for e-books that enables dynamic adaptation of the text to the size of the display device. It is particularly well suited for displaying e-books on tablet PCs, smartphones, and e-book readers.
EPUBs can also be easily displayed on MACs/PCs via the free ADE (Adobe Digital Editions) software, for example.

Is an Internet connection required to read an e-book?
An Internet connection is required only to download the e-book to the reader. Once the download is complete, you can view and read the e-book without an Internet connection.

Are e-books copy-protected?
E-books from Thieme Publishing Group are provided with DRM (Digital Rights Management) protection from Vitalsource

On how many devices can I read the e-book?
You can read an e-book on up to six different (mobile) devices. These devices must be authorized with the same Adobe ID.

Can I exchange/return an e-book?
E-books are products that are not suitable for return due to their nature. Just like downloads of other electronic files (movies, music or software), e-books are excluded from the right of withdrawal. A return or exchange is therefore not possible.
