About this book

Upon publication of the first edition, Pediatric Nuclear Medicine emerged as the standard text in the field. Given the rapid expansion of nuclear medicine, particularly in pediatrics, over the past several years, the marketplace is ready for a new edition that reflects the latest advances in PET, SPECT, and oncology. This text is a welcome extension of the second edition that retains the fundamentals that anchor the title’s distinguished reputation. It has been thoroughly revised and updated to incorporate cutting-edge diagnostic techniques. The third edition serves as an excellent resource for physicians whose nuclear medicine practices include children and provides a vast amount of background material for residents in training.

Strategically expanded throughout, the third edition features:

  • Discussions and examples of PET in pediatric oncology, neurology, and cardiology
  • A revamped chapter on SPECT
  • Explanations of the latest applications of SPECT
  • Presentation of comparative studies with MRI and CT, including image registration and fusion among
    MRI/SPECT, MRI/PET, SPECT/PET, SPECT/CT, and PET/CT
  • Revised sections on the cardiovascular system, the genitourinary system, neuroblastoma, scrotal
    scintigraphy, and thyroid diseases
  • Expanded coverage of oncology
