Transverse tomography with single photon emitters is commonly known as single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), whereas with positron emitters it is known as PET. This chapter describes the principle of transverse tomography, instruments commonly used for SPECT and PET, and the relative merits of the two types.

      Positron Emission Tomography with Computed Tomography (PET/CT) is a nuclear medicine imaging modality using positron-emitting radiotracers and a combined PET and CT scanner in order to detect and localize high radiotracer signal : Springer International Publishing. Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is a method for measuring biochemical and physiological processes in vivo in a quantitative way by using radiopharmaceuticals labelled with positron emitting radionuclides such as 11 C, 13 N, 15 O and 18 F and by measuring the annihilation radiationFile Size: KB.

    Because positron emission tomography (PET) utilizes high-energy ( keV) photons, it is often thought that attenuation effects in PET, compared with single-photon emission computed tomography.   Mosby’s Exam Review for Computed Tomography - E-Book: Edition 3 - Ebook written by Daniel N.

Emission computed tomography (ECT) is a type of tomography involving radioactive emissions. Types include positron emission tomography (PET) and Single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT). The imaging agent used in SPECT emits gamma rays, as opposed to the positron emitters (such as 18 F) used in PET.

There are a range of radiotracers (such as 99m Tc, In, I, Tl) ICDCM: Emission Tomography: The Fundamentals of PET and SPECT is an essential resource for understanding the technology of SPECT and PET, the most widely used forms of molecular imaging.

Santiago. Emission tomography (ET) 1 is a branch of medical imaging that encompasses two main techniques—positron emission tomography (PET) and single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) 2 —which use radioactive materials to image properties of the body's physiology.

For example, ET images can represent the spatial distribution of properties.

The invention of computed tomography (CT) technique revolutionized diagnostic imaging. Compared to conventional X-ray imaging procedures, CT involves higher radiation doses. Recently, cone-beam CT (CBCT) specifically designed for maxillofacial imaging was introduced.

CBCT technique is based on a cone-shaped X-ray beam centered on a two-dimensional (2D) : Ufuk Tatli, Burcu Evlice. single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) a type of tomography in which gamma photon–emitting radionuclides are administered to patients and then detected by one or more gamma cameras rotated around the patient.

From the series of two-dimensional images produced, a three-dimensional image can be created by computer reconstruction.

• Positron emission tomography (PET) is a technique that measures physiological function by looking at blood flow, metabolism, neurotransmitters, and radiolabelled drugs.

PET offers quantitative analyses, allowing relative changes over time to be monitored as a disease process evolves or in response to a specific by: 7. A procedure that combines the pictures from a positron emission tomography (PET) scan and a computed tomography (CT) scan.

The PET and CT scans are done at the same time with the same machine. The combined scans give more detailed pictures of areas inside the. With the increase in new therapies to treat cancer, improved diagnostic tools are needed to help determine best treatment options. Many radiopharmaceuticals used with positron-emission tomography/computed tomography have been tested to evaluate solid cancers.

Two of the newer radiopharmaceuticals are 18F sodium fluoride and radiolabeled choline. Essential for students, science and medical graduates who want to understand the basic science of Positron Emission Tomography (PET), this book describes the physics, chemistry, technology and overview of the clinical uses behind the science of PET and the imaging techniques it uses.

In recent years, PET has moved from high-end research imaging. Positron emission tomography (PET) is a functional diagnostic imaging modality whose indications in clinical field is growing rapidly. PET is used to study metabolism of various biological. The title is unlikely to attract this audience, but the book delivers far more than its title promises.

The technicalities of positron emission tomography (PET) and single-photon emission tomography (SPET) are clearly explained in an approach that is neither narrow nor uncritical. The book describes the state of the art of emission tomography, including all facets of conventional SPECT and PET, as well as contemporary topics such as iterative image reconstruction, small-animal imaging, and PET/CT systems.

This book is intended as a textbook and reference resource for graduate students, researchers, medical physicists 4/5(4).
