The Atlas of PET/CT Imaging in Oncology serves an educational purpose and is designed to teach radiologists and nuclear medicine specialists about important aspects of molecular imaging and nuclear medicine specialists about the benefits of anatomic imaging. It consists of a brief didactic portion and an extensive selection of interesting and challenging case examples. A special feature of the atlas is an interactive CD-ROM that provides the original PET and CT images of each case in selected planes enabling the users to manually adjust the blending intensity of each modality in a fused image. In addition, users can display the clinical history, imaging techniques and diagnostic findings of each case as well as the corresponding specific teaching point.

From the reviews:
ZAD Maganzine (USA) 2/2005: " This is a beautifully presented book ..., it illustrates the PET and CT appearances of all the major tumours and demonstrates the value of image fusion to determine diagnosis. It will not only assist training of colleagues in radiology and nuclear medicine but will be of substanial relevance to oncologists of all disciplines...
"This is a beautifully presented book ... . It illustrates the PET and CT appearances of all the major tumours ... . Each chapter opens with a brief clinical introduction and follows with good quality PET/CT images illustrating abnormal findings. ... the illustrations are of excellent quality. The book both looks good and feels good. It will not only assist training of colleagues in radiology and nuclear medicine but will be of substantial relevance to oncologists of all disciplines." (Dr. C L Harmer, RAD Magazine, February, 2005)
"This book has been a pleasure; it is consistently excellent. The authors strike an unusual balance between a 'picture book' with little cognitive content and a textbook that is crammed with ideas but without supporting imgages. Introductory chapers clearly and honestly explain the state of the art, without 'molecular imaging' hype, and carefully selected examples supported by well-reproduced images make the case." (Z.D. Grossmann, Buffalo, Int J Cancer Res Vol. 69, Issue 1,2005)
"The editors present a book on the use of PET/CET imaging with useful state-of-the-art information on the different techniques. ... In each chapter, the authors give an extensive selection of interesting case examples. ... The book is equipped with excellent high-resolution imaging material and CT, PET/CT correlation. It can be recommended to those interested in PET/CT imaging and in oncological questions." (T. J. Vogl, European Radiology, Vol. 16, 2006)
"With the advent of combined morphologic an molecular imaging by PET/CT this Atlas of PET/CT Imaging in Oncology there is a need to educate radiologists and nuclear medicine specialists about the use of this new imaging modality and to remark with the evidence of a commented guide the importance of merging and anatomic testing. ... This book is written by experts and will result in an immediate improvement of knowledge for Nuclear Medicine specialists and oncologists." (G. L. Lucignani, The Quarterly Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, Vol. 49 (3), 2005)
