Provides up-to-dateguidance on the use of PET/CT in patientswith melanoma
Describes characteristic imaging features, normal variants, artifacts, and pitfalls
Provides informationon the relevant clinical and pathologicalbackground
Includes a series of informative teaching cases
This pocketbook provides up-to-date guidance on the use ofPET/CT in patients withmelanoma, which is of rapidly growing importance due to the emergence of immunotherapy. The role of PET/CT in diagnostic workup, staging, treatment selection, prognostication, and follow-up is clearlyexplained. Imaging features are described and illustrated with the aid of a series of teaching cases, and attention is drawn tonormal variants, artifacts,and pitfalls. Readers will also findexplanation of the relationof the clinical and pathological background to imaging and the value of PET/CT compared with conventional radiological imaging. The book is publishedwithin the Springer series Clinicians Guides to Radionuclide Hybrid Imaging (compiled under the auspices of the British NuclearMedicine Society) and willbe an excellent asset for referringclinicians, nuclear medicine/radiologyphysicians, radiographers/technologists, and nurses who routinely workin nuclear medicine and participate in multidisciplinary meetings.
