A critical summary of the state of the art of PET technology and related disciplines (camera physics, radiochemistry, radiopharmacology, computerised brain atlases and databases, etc.), plus a survey of the most recent developments in the clinical and neuroscience applications of PET.
The chapters systematically guide the reader from the basics of the technique – including new camera designs, new drugs, and new statistical and image processing approaches – through its most important clinical applications – in neurology, psychiatry and oncology – to the most sophisticated neuroscience applications, including research into human sensory and motor systems, the functional organisation of imagery, volition, attention and consciousness in the human brain.
