The box of nuclear drugs has developed quickly in recent times, and one vitally important element of this development has been the creation of hybrid imaging platforms. PET-CT has already won frequent reputation in lots of scientific settings, in particular inside oncology, and now SPECT-CT offers to emulate its good fortune. valuable purposes of this new procedure were pointed out not just in oncology but in addition in endocrinology, cardiology, inner medication, and different specialties. This atlas, which include 1000s of top quality photographs, is a ordinary advisor to the optimum use and interpretation of SPECT-CT. the total diversity of power SPECT-CT purposes in scientific regimen is taken into account and assessed by way of stated specialists. The publication is designed to function a reference textual content for either nuclear physicians and radiologists; it's going to additionally supply basic help for radiographers, technologists, and nuclear medication and radiology citizens. Following the editors’ different atlases on PET-CT and non-FDG PET-CT, the Atlas of SPECT-CT completes a trilogy supplying updated details and assistance at the complete spectrum of hybrid imaging.
