Practical FDG Imaging provides the reader with a reference source of cases with FDG images obtained both on dedicated PET tomographs and hybrid scintillation cameras. The cases are presented in depth so that they will be of value to both specialists and residents in training who need to learn the indications and interpretations of FDG images and the advantages and limitations of hybrid scintillation cameras compared with dedicated PET tomographs. This book is ideal for nuclear and radiology medicine residents, as well as those practitioners who need to become familiar with this technology. The first part of the book concentrates on the technical aspects of FDG imaging. Part two is devoted to clinical applications in the fields of neurology, cardiology and oncology.
