From the reviews:
"This book represents a timely tool, as it provides a general framework for understanding the basis of most quantitative approaches to NM imaging and for appreciating their pros and cons. … overall this book is easy to read, clear and stimulating. It can be recommended to all imaging professionals (NM physicians, residents and fellows, as well as physicists and engineers) who seek an authoritative guide that will enable them to keep up to date with the ‘hard’ quantitative aspects of NM … ." (Mario Quarantelli and Anna Prinster, European Journal of Nuclear Medicine & Molecular Imaging, Vol. 34, 2007)
"This book is intended primarily for physicists, physicians, imaging scientists, and graduate students who wish to obtain a high level of knowledge of image processing and analysis methods applied to quantitative nuclear medicine imaging in diagnosis and therapy. ... an excellent and up-to-date reference on advanced quantitative analysis methods applied to both single-photon and PET imaging. ... The book could also be used as a stand-alone text for a course on advanced topics in nuclear medicine imaging. I recommend this book ... ." (William D. Erwin, The Journal of Nuclear Medicine, Vol. 48 (8), 2007)From the Publisher:
This book provides a review of image analysis techniques as they are applied in the field of diagnostic and therapeutic nuclear medicine. Driven in part by the remarkable increase in computing power and its ready and inexpensive availability, this is a relatively new yet rapidly expanding field. Likewise, although the use of radionuclides for diagnosis and therapy has origins dating back almost to the discovery of natural radioactivity itself, radionuclide therapy and, in particular, targeted radionuclide therapy has only recently emerged as a promising approach for therapy of cancer and, to a lesser extent, other diseases. As effort has, therefore, been made to place the reviews provided in this book in a broader context. The effort to do this is reflected by the inclusion of introductory chapters that address basic principles of nuclear medicine imaging, followed by overview of issues that are closely related to quantitative nuclear imaging and its potential role in diagnostic and therapeutic applications. The different chapters discuss the basic principles and various steps required for obtaining quantitatively accurate data from nuclear medicine images including data collection methods and algorithms used to correct them for physical degrading factors (e.g. collimator response, attenuation, scatter, partial volume effect), and image reconstruction algorithms (analytic, iterative) as well as image processing and analysis techniques as their clinical and research applications in neurology, cardiology and oncology. Some algorithms are described and illustrated with some useful features and clinical applications. Other potential applications of quantitative image analysis such as image-guided radiation therapy are also discussed.
