PET-CT and PET-MRI in Neurology : SWOT Analysis Applied to Hybrid Imaging Hardback
Edited by Luigi Mansi
Using SWOT analysis, this book examines in detail the strengths and weaknesses of the hybrid modalities PET-CT and PET-MRI for imaging of the central nervous system, comparing their merits and evaluating their advantages over the stand-alone modalities.
The aim is to employ a truly systematic approach in order to define the potential clinical benefit of these modalities and to identify shortcomings, opportunities, and threats.
Clinical application of the modalities is explored in a range of conditions, including dementia and related disorders, movement disorders, psychiatric disorders, cerebrovascular disease, infection/inflammation, brain tumors, and pediatric neurologic disorders.
In addition, the basics of hybrid imaging are addressed, covering physics, instrumentation, data analysis and quantitation, radiopharmaceuticals, and contrast media.
PET-CT and PET-MRI in Neurology, written by experts from Europe and the United States, will be essential reading for imaging specialists and of value for neurologists, psychiatrists, neurosurgeons, and pediatricians.
