COVID Resources. Reliable information about the coronavirus (COVID) is available from the World Health Organization (current situation, international travel).Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this ’s WebJunction has pulled together information and resources to assist library staff as they consider how to handle coronavirus.

The design and the development of radiopharmaceuticals for molecular imaging studies using PET/MicroPET or SPECT/MicroSPECT are a unique challenge. This book is intended for a broad audience and written with the main purpose of educating the reader on various aspects including potential clinical utility, limitations of drug development, and Cited by:   Shankar Vallabhajosula.

Berlin, Germany: Springer-Verlag,pages, $ Molecular Imaging: Radiopharmaceuticals for PET and SPECT is a well-written compendium of chapters that cover a wide range of topics regarding the use of radiopharmaceuticals in SPECT and PET.

Vallabhajosula has effectively summarized the basics of chemistry, radiochemistry, radiation Cited by: 2. PET radiopharmaceuticals for brain imaging are commonly labeled with positron-emitters such as 11 C, 13 N, 15 O, and 18 F, although other radionuclides such as 82 Rb, 62 Cu and 68 Ga also were used.

The brain uptake of [ 13 N]glutamate, [ 68 Ga]EDTA and [ 82 Rb]RbCl depends on the BBB permeability, but these are rarely used for brain by:   power of the study. Over the years brain imaging studies have evolved to include single photon-emitting and positron-emitting radiopharmaceuticals for planar, SPECT and PET imaging, with some emphasis now in the development of PET agents because they offer the promise of more selective targeting in the brain.

This book is a concise guide to PET (PET/CT and PET/MRI) molecular imaging, highlighting the crucial role of novel PET radiopharmaceuticals in the clinical usefulness of PET and presenting clinical cases with multi-tracer evaluation in a single patient, revealing mismatches or diagnostic overlap.

Reba R.C. Radiopharmaceuticals and Brain Pathology Studied with PET and SPECT. CRC Press, View in Article. Overall, this book offers an up-to-date review on the radiopharmaceuticals for PET and SPECT imaging. It is very informative, well written, and the image quality is excellent.

Its broad coverage, clear and concise descriptions, and easily understandable writing are clearly the strengths of this book. PET scans also use radiopharmaceuticals to create three-dimensional images. The main difference between SPECT and PET scans is the type of radiotracers used.

While SPECT scans measure gamma rays, the decay of the radiotracers used with PET scans produce small particles called positrons.

Nuclear cardiology has experienced exponential growth within the past four decades with converging capacity to diagnose and influence management of a variety of cardiovascular diseases.

Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) with technetiumm radiotracers or thallium has dominated the field; however new hardware and software designs that.

Radiopharmaceuticals are a key element in PET techniques and one of the pivotal factors influencing the applications of PET. The aim of this Special Issue in Molecules is to report recent research work on a number of aspects of PET radiopharmaceuticals and their preclinical and clinical use.

More specifically, the content of this Special Issue. A number of radiopharmaceuticals are used in human imaging. They share the physical characteristic of emitting radiation of various kinds. In some cases the emitted particles are detected either directly or indirectly by specialized equipment (e.g.

SPECT, PET, gamma camera, etc.) to generate imaging. In other cases, the agent is used to have a.Some available radiopharmaceuticals mostly organic in nature and labelled with artificial radionuclides, such as indium and gallium, are used to study organs and tissues without disturbing them.

The PET (E) camera records the dynamic distribution of radioactivity (F) during the time-course of a study. Images of radiopharmaceutical concentrations in the brain are reconstructed.
