Brain Imaging Using PET

Michio Senda, Peter Herscovitch
e altri

editore: Academic Press Inc

pagine: 321

Discussing not only PET technique and instrumentation, but new developments in a broad range of fields such as kinetics, enzyme/neurotransmitter transport, language acquisition, and neuropathology, "Brain Imaging Using PET" will appeal to both PET experts and non-PET users in many branches of neuroscience. The authors offer an invaluable analysis of brain imaging and techniques, providing everything from the foundations to the practical applications of the modern techniques used in PET. It covers: head motion correction; tricks for PET imaging of monkeys and other animals; parametric images by quantification without arterial blood sampling; measurement of endogenous dopamine release; imaging acetylcholine esterase activity in Alzheimer patients; dopaminergic functions in Parkinson patients and animal models; new tracers for PET imaging of NK1, sigma-1 and other receptors; and, application of Bayesian, wavelet, cluster and other math techniques.

Multislice Computed Tomography

Principles, Practice, and Clinical Protocols

Paul M. Silverman

editore: Lippincott Williams and Wilkins

pagine: 216

From the author of our best-selling handbook on helical (spiral) CT comes a brand-new, indispensable, practical guide to the next generation of technology - multislice (or multidetector) CT. Dr. Silverman and his renowned colleagues present detailed, easy-to-follow scanning protocols for all areas of the body, for pediatric examinations, and for three-dimensional imaging...and explain the principles behind the protocols. The opening chapter explains the practical physics of multislice CT and the vast capabilities of this technology as compared to single-slice CT. Subsequent chapters cover the head and neck; chest; abdomen and pelvis; musculoskeletal system; multislice imaging in pediatrics; and three-dimensional imaging. Each chapter features a comprehensive list of protocols for specific clinical indications. Coverage of three-dimensional imaging is extensive because multislice scanning significantly broadens these applications. The protocols are presented in the same user-friendly outline format as in Dr. Silverman's other handbook - clinical indication(s); scanner settings; oral contrast agents; phase of respiration; slice thickness; pitch; exposure time; reconstruction interval; superior and inferior exam extent; intravenous contrast; and pertinent comments and 'pearls'. Images on the page opposite each protocol show the quality of scans that can be obtained. The author has unified the terminologies of different equipment vendors so that the protocols can be used with equipment from any manufacturer.

Multislice CT in Cardiac Imaging

Technical Principles, Clincal Application and Future Developments

Bernd M. Ohnesorge, Christoph R. Becker
e altri

editore: Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. K

pagine: 126

Cardiac diseases and in particular coronary artery disease are the leading cause of death and morbidity in the industrialized countries. The development of reliable cardiac imaging techniques is considered a key issue in improving patient care. The introduction of multi-slice computed tomography in 1998 represented a breakthrough of CT technology in cardiac imaging. For the first time, widely available CT systems can be used for non-invasive, angiographic assessment of the heart and the coronary arteries. This book presents and discusses the technical concepts, the potential spectrum of applications and the future perspectives of multi-slice CT in cardiac imaging based on the experience of internationally leading clinical institutions. It shows that this new modality has the potential to become an important and robust tool for non-invasive and early diagnosis of cardiac diseases, thus complementing invasive and non-invasive imaging modalities in clinical routine in the near future.

Protocolli di studio in TC spirale multistrato.

Andrea Laghi, Riccardo Ferrari

editore: Springer Verlag

pagine: 60

L'angiografia con TC spirale multistrato è oggi una metodica fondamentale nella diagnostica vascolare non invasiva in pressoché tutti i distretti anatomici. La facilità e, soprattutto, la rapidità di esecuzione la rendono anche essenziale nei casi di urgenza ed emergenza. La qualità diagnostica dell'esame, e la conseguente accuratezza della diagnosi, sono il risultato di un'ottimizzazione della tecnica di studio e, in particolare, del protocollo di iniezione endovenosa del mezzo di contrasto iodato. Mediante la presentazione di casi esplicativi riguardanti i differenti distretti vascolari, il volume intende fornire al Radiologo generale e allo Specializzando una guida ai principali protocolli di studio da mettere in atto al fine di ottimizzare la qualità dell'esame e, conseguentemente, facilitare il processo diagnostico.

Ileo meccanico dell'intestino tenue: aspetti TC e correlazioni eco-radiografiche

Mariano Scaglione, Roberto Di Mizio

editore: Springer Verlag

pagine: 126

L'occlusione meccanica dell'intestino tenue rappresenta una problematica clinica di frequente riscontro, la cui gestione clinico-strumentale è resa difficile dalla complessità dei meccanismi responsabili del quadro occlusivo. Il ruolo del radiologo è quello di orientare tempestivamente l'iter terapeutico sulla base di una corretta interpretazione dei quadri iconografici. Lo scopo di questo volume -unico nel suo genere- è quello di correlare la fisiopatologia dell'occlusione all'imaging. La ricca iconografia, che spazia dall'esordio clinico alla risoluzione, enfatizza il ruolo della tomografia computerizzata multidetettore con mezzo di contrasto per via endovenosa, che è il gold standard attuale. Tuttavia, non vengono dimenticate le correlazioni con le metodiche eco-radiografiche, che conservano un efficace ruolo diagnostico, a basso costo biologico ed economico. L'ileo meccanico del tenue è un esempio eclatante a sostegno del sogno di molti addetti ai lavori: quello, cioè, di avere una figura di fine radiologo dell'emergenza addominale, esperto di organo e di malattia e non solo di macchina, come spesso purtroppo accade.

Tomografia computerizzata. Spirale e multistrato

Mathias Prokop, Michael Galanski

editore: Elsevier

pagine: 1115

L'introduzione della scansione spirale e, in tempi più recenti, della tecnica multistrato hanno notevolmente ampliato il campo d'azione della TC che, a circa trent'anni dalla sua nascita, resta la metodica diagnostica più accreditata in campo radiologico. Questo volume, frutto della collaborazione di un gruppo di specialisti di consolidata esperienza, fa il punto sulle attuali possibilità che la tecnologia multistrato e a spirale offrono, senza pero dimenticare le basi costruite nel corso degli anni dalla TC tradizionale.
