The book reflects the rapid development of several PET tracers over the last decade, as a result of which the “traditional” PET/CT with 18F-FDG, the “cornerstone” of PET imaging, is now only one of several available options, which use different tracers for different diseases. For the same reason, PET imaging is no longer limited to the field of oncology.
In the editors’ experience, students in medicine and residents in nuclear medicine and radiology have limited access to scientific papers concerning novel PET tracers. Moreover, these papers generally focus on a single PET radiopharmaceutical. With approx. 20 radiopharmaceuticals explained in detail and a wealth of images and clinical cases, the book represents a versatile, comprehensive and practice-oriented guide to PET imaging, pursuing a unique and novel approach to the clinical role of PET tracers.
The book’s didactic nature also makes it an invaluable tool for residents in nuclear medicine and radiology, as well as for radiographers and clinicians in radiotherapy, oncology, hematology, cardiology and neurology.
Prof. Orazio Schillaci graduated with a degree in Medicine in 1990 and specialized in Nuclear Medicine in 19942 at the University of Rome “La Sapienza.” He began his scientific work at the University of L’Aquila: during this important period, Schillaci started exploring molecular imaging, with an emphasis on SPECT for neuroendocrine tumors. After a research stay in California, USA, he became a Professor of Nuclear Medicine at the University of Rome “Tor Vergata” in 2001. Since 2008 he has led the School of Specialization in Nuclear Medicine and, since 2013, has been Director of the School Of Medicine at the “Tor Vergata” University Hospital in Rome. The author of more than 220 scientific articles listed in PubMed, his current research interest is in the development of novel PET radiopharmaceuticals and their potential clinical applications in oncology, neurology, cardiology and infectious disease, within a network involving several Italian and European institutions. Most recently, he became President of the Italian Association of Nuclear Medicine (AIMN).
