Emission Tomography: The Fundamentals of PET and SPECT by Miles N. Wernick,John N. Aarsvold

By Miles N. Wernick,John N. Aarsvold

puppy and SPECT are of today’s most vital medical-imaging equipment, delivering photos that demonstrate sophisticated information regarding physiological approaches in people and animals. Emission Tomography: the basics of puppy and SPECT explains the physics and engineering rules of those very important functional-imaging tools. The know-how of emission tomography is roofed intimately, together with old origins, clinical and mathematical foundations, imaging platforms and their parts, photograph reconstruction and research, simulation suggestions, and medical and laboratory functions. The publication describes the state-of-the-art of emission tomography, together with all aspects of traditional SPECT and puppy, in addition to modern issues equivalent to iterative snapshot reconstruction, small-animal imaging, and PET/CT structures. This ebook is meant as a textbook and reference source for graduate scholars, researchers, clinical physicists, biomedical engineers, engineers and physicists within the medical-imaging undefined. Thorough tutorials of primary and complex issues are awarded through dozens of the top researchers in puppy and SPECT. SPECT has lengthy been a mainstay of scientific imaging, and puppy is now one of many world’s quickest becoming scientific imaging strategies, due to its dramatic contributions to melanoma imaging and different functions. Emission Tomography: the basics of puppy and SPECT is a vital source for realizing the expertise of SPECT and puppy, the main popular different types of molecular imaging.
