From the early 1970s to mid-1990s, positron emission tomography (PET) as a diagnostic imaging modality had been for the most part used in ex- 82 perimental research. Clinical PET started only a decade ago. Rb-RbCl and 18 F-Fluorodeoxyglucose were approved by the U. S. Food and Drug adm- istration in 1989 and 1994, respectively, for clinical PET imaging. Reim- 82 bursement by Medicare was approved in 1995 for Rb-PET myocardial 18 perfusion imaging and for F-FDG PET for various oncologic indi- tions in 1999.

From the early 1970s to mid-1990s, positron emission tomography (PET) as a diagnostic imaging modality had been for the most part used in ex- 82 perimental research. Clinical PET started only a decade ago. Rb-RbCl and 18 F-Fluorodeoxyglucose were approved by the U. S. Food and Drug adm- istration in 1989 and 1994, respectively, for clinical PET imaging. Reim- 82 bursement by Medicare was approved in 1995 for Rb-PET myocardial 18 perfusion imaging and for F-FDG PET for various oncologic indi- tions in 1999. Currently several more PET procedures are covered for reimbursement. Based on the incentive from reimbursement for PET procedures and accurate and effective diagnosis of various diseases, PET centers are growing in the United States and worldwide. The importance of PET imaging has ?ourished to such a large extent that the Nuclear Medicine Technology Certi?cation Board (NMTCB) is planning to introduce a PET specialty examination in 2004 for nuclear medicine technologists,as well as an augmented version of the PET specialty examination in 2005 for reg- tered radiographers and radiation therapy technologists. Courses are being offered all over the country to train physicians and technologists in PET technology. Many books on clinical PET have appeared in the market, but no book on the basics of PET imaging is presently available. Obviously, such a book is needed to ful?ll the requirements of these courses and certi?cations.

Rezensionen
From the reviews of the second edition:
"This book, revised to reflect the growth in PET and PET/CT imaging, presents concepts at a basic level designed to help nuclear medicine professionals in their training and preparation for board certification. ... It is meant as a preparatory guide for physicians ... . The author is a world expert on radiopharmacy. ... This second edition has been extensively revised to update information on detectors, scanners, and data collection. ... The book is relatively inexpensive and covers the subject at the basic level very well." (Dean W. Broga, Doody's Review Service, November, 2010)
