This textbook presents the reader with the most up-to-date, practical information on the practice of cardiac PET and hybrid PET/CT. Each chapter takes a step-by-step approach to this emerging technology, from basic principles of instrumentation, imaging, and protocols, to advanced discussions of current and future clinical applications. Perspective on other emerging imaging modalities (e.g., MRI) and the relative role of each adds to the well-rounded approach. A section on the technical aspects of cardiac PET and PET/CT imaging directed to and written by technologists is included as well. Molecular imaging approaches that are likely to play a clinical role in the future are also thoroughly covered. A library of original cases selected by the editors and contributors completes the text by illustrating interpretation and technical challenges in cardiac PET and hybrid PET/CT.
