Book review by C. Catalano
Hybrid PET/CT and SPECT/CT Imaging: a teaching file is a book plus CD-ROM combination recently published by Springer. This new volume is a hallmark of education for radiologists, nuclear physicians and general physicians. Clinical cases are accurately presented with exhaustive imaging findings as well as medical history, differential diagnosis, final diagnosis and discussion to illustrate common clinical situations in the everyday hospital scenario.
The volume’s editors and authors have succeeded admirably in presenting the technical concepts of hybrid imaging with clear descriptions for both radiologists and clinicians, who are provided with an efficient guide to a complex discipline. The idea of including a detailed preface to each chapter, for example regarding the staging, monitoring, diagnosis and treatment of each pathology, is an example of a broad vision and contributes to the completeness of this book.
