Positron Emission Tomography with Computed Tomography (PET/CT) is a nuclear medicine imaging modality using positron-emitting radiotracers and a combined PET and CT scanner in order to detect and localize high radiotracer signal abnormalities. Although PET has evolved into a diagnostic modality of prime importance in oncology (with the radiotracer (F18-FDG) it was originally envisioned to image and diagnose diseases of the brain and the heart. Lack or limited experience in PET may result in an erroneous interpretation of the findings in this sensitive imaging modality.The existence of various rare cancers has resulted in scanty if not a lack of knowledge about the usefulness of PET in these interesting albeit uncommon maladies. The author, drawing from more than ten years of experience as the chairman/director of the only PET Center in the Philippines, aims to present the most interesting cases he has encountered which may be educational to those beginning their practice or even helpful to veterans of the field whose scope of practice has been limited to the most common and reimbursable indications of an FDG-PET scan."

This book provides a detailed overview of ultrasound imaging of sport-related injuries of the lower extremity. The available literature focuses mainly on either clinical aspects or all imaging modalities and clinical aspects of sport-related pathologies, with little relevance on ultrasound. Indeed, recent advances in ultrasound technology, including high resolution, electronic, broadband transducers, have led to improved assessment of the musculoskeletal system, and ultrasound is now considered an optimal imaging technique to evaluate musculoskeletal sport-related injuries. Its advantages include the ability to perform dynamic examinations essential for many diagnoses, such as intrasheath instability of the peroneal tendons. Drawing on the author's over 30 years of experience in clinical praxis, this book highlights the great potential of the ultrasonographic evaluation of sports-related injuries and is entirely devoted to this technique. Similar to the two previous monographs by the same author, the book has the form of an atlas-text, with a wealth of high-quality ultrasound images and schemes - a structure that has proved particularly effective for learning, especially for younger physicians. Ultrasonography of the lower extremity: sport-related injuries combines the interests of various specialists, including radiologists, physiatrists, orthopedists, rheumatologists, and ultrasound technicians.

Featuring 137 carefully selected cases, this atlas covers virtually every aspect of clinical cross-sectional imaging of the liver, gallbladder, biliary system and pancreas. For the vast majority of the cases, both CT and MR images are included to demonstrate the different features of each lesion. Furthermore, both typical and atypical pathologies are included to facilitate the differential diagnosis in daily clinical practice. Concise yet comprehensive,this atlas includes not only imaging features of the lesions but also the related pathologic and clinical data. It is therefore useful both as a quick guide for practicing radiologists and as a brief textbook for radiologists in training.
