Abstract

Althoug [18F]fluorodeooxyglucose (FDG) generally shows an exellent performance as a cancer-imaging agent when using PET/CT, there are some settings in wich other radiopharmaceuticals offer advantages. Such non-FDG tracers are now gaining widespread acceptance not only research but also in clinical practise, with the acquisition of promising results in the management of various cancers. This atlas, including about 500 highquality images, is a user-friendly guide to PET/CT imaging beyond FDG. A wide range of tracers is covered such as 18F- and 11C-choline, 11C-methionine, 18F-ethyl-L-tyrosine, 68Ga-DOTA-NOC, 11C-acetate, 11C-thymidine and 18F-DOPA. Troughout, the emphasis is on image interpretation with guidance on the recognition of normal, begin, and malignant uptake and clear instruction on learning points and pitfalls. This book is a companion to the editors' recently published Atlas of PET/CT, which focuses exclusively on the use of FDG. It is designed to serve as a reference text for both nuclear physicians and radiologists, and will also be of great benefit to radiographers, tschnologists and nuclear medicine and radiology residents.
