Benlloch ED1 - Chia-Hung Hsieh Y1 - 2012-02-08 PY - 2012 T1 - Virtual PET Scanner – From Simulation in GATE to a Final Multiring Albira PET/SPECT/CT Camera N2 - This book's stated purpose is to provide a discussion of the technical basis and clinical applications of positron emission tomography (PET), as well as their recent progress in nuclear medicine. It also summarizes current literature about research and clinical science in PET. The book is divided into two broad sections: basic science and clinical science. The basic science section examines PET imaging processing, kinetic modeling, free software, and radiopharmaceuticals. The clinical science section demonstrates various clinical applications and diagnoses. The text is intended not only for scientists, but also for all clinicians seeking recent information regarding PET.
