Radiology for PET/CT Reporting by Cristina Nanni

By Cristina Nanni

Reading PET/CT scans is typically tough. no longer now and again, irregular findings on CT photos are functionally silent and hence tricky for nuclear medication practitioners to interpret. in addition, as a rule just a low-dose CT test is produced as a part of the mixed PET/CT research, and the ensuing CT photos might end up suboptimal for snapshot interpretation. This atlas is designed to allow nuclear medication practitioners who repeatedly learn PET/CT scans to acknowledge the commonest CT abnormalities. Slice-by-slice descriptions are supplied of anatomical constructions as visualized on CT scans got in PET/CT reviews. The CT findings that could be detected whereas reviewing PET/CT scans of assorted physique areas and prerequisites are then illustrated and entirely defined. The concluding component to the ebook is dedicated to the central MRI findings in illnesses which can't be evaluated utilizing PETs/CTs. ​
