Item description for NeuroPET: PET in Neuroscience and Clinical Neurology by Karl Herholz, Peter Herscovitch & W. D. Heiss...
Neurological applications of PET include using itto identify Alzheimer's Disease, including differentiating between other forms of Dementia, to show causes of seizures that were otherwise unclear, and to diagnose psychiatric disorders like Schizophrenia. Although other books on PET may have a chapter or section on neurological applications, this is the only comprehensive and up-to-date book on neurological PET. It reviews PET in neuroscience with particular emphasis on findings that indicate its potential for improving diagnosis and treatment in neurology and psychiatry. Improving the transfer of the huge scientific developments in brain PET into clinical carewill produce tangible human benefit. To this end, NeuroPET focuses on practical and potentially clinically relevant issues and identify solid ground as well as open questions. In addition, the book includes major chapters on the methodological background, including tracer physiology and kinetic modeling, and a comprehensive literature review. Included in this extremely useful package is a CD-ROMthat featuresvideo clips and interactive navigation in 3D data sets that illustrate the information contained in PET images in major neurological diseases and its potential to improve diagnosis and neurosurgical planning in brain tumors.

Reviews - What do customers think about NeuroPET: PET in Neuroscience and Clinical Neurology?
Very clear and consise Mar 28, 2006
This book is very beautifully made and illustrated in addition to being very well-written by an international expert in the field of PET. The chapters cover all areas of application of PET in neuroscience and this makes the book quite exhaustive in scope despite in rather small size (it is also rather expensive...for its size..its only drawack...maybe). It also covers most of the necessary technical background information you need if you thinnk of getting into PET.
