This book provides a comprehensive state-of-the-art review of pediatric nuclear medicine, encompassing both diagnostic and therapeutic applications. Detailed attention is paid to the role of FDG PET-CT within oncology, but a variety of other long-established or less frequently used diagnostic procedures are also covered. Each indication is critically discussed from a clinical perspective, with analysis of benefits and limitations and comparison against the information yield of alternative techniques. The coverage of therapy based on radiopharmaceuticals includes the most relevant current strategies, including those utilizing radioiodine, MIBG, or radiolabelled peptides. In addition, issues concerning the radiation risk of nuclear medicine procedures in children are addressed. All chapters have been written by international experts and include the most up-to-date scientific and clinical information.

"The target audience includes nuclear medicine physicians, radiologists, technologists, or others involved in pediatric nuclear imaging. ... this book ultimately fulfills its goal of providing the necessary information about the appropriate use of nuclear medicine in the care of children. The book is concise, current, and well organized. I would recommend it to pediatric nuclear medicine subspecialists around the world." (Daniel Peter Thut, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2016)

"All chapters are comprehensive and well structured, covering clinical and technical (radiopharmaceuticals, instrumentation) aspects, interpretation and pitfalls; a table of contents precedes each of them, thus facilitating quick search for particular information. The book is pleasant to read with numerous illustrations that are well chosen and of excellent quality. This makes it an outstanding tool for teaching students, technologists and nuclear medicine residents. ... this book should be at hand for staff members, above all physicians, technologists and nurses." (Angelika Bischof Delaloye, European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, Vol. 43, 2016)
