Emphasizing practical technique over underlying physics, this book discusses the use of PET/CT imaging in lung, lymphoma, esophageal, colorectal, head/neck and melanoma, and tumors of the reproductive system. Each chapter offers a summary of the appropriate staging system, and a full chapter is devoted to the range of normal PET/CT appearances. Focusing primarily on FDG-PET/CT, the text includes a review of future application of other positron emitters, and a beginners guide to the physics of PET/CT. Concise, relevant and illustrated with many detailed PET/CT images, it is essential reading for consultants and medical students in radiology, nuclear medicine and oncology.

HTML web-page-writing language. But the real story is a whole lot messier.
HTML5 is a rebel. It was dreamt up by a loose group of freethinkers who
weren’t in charge of the official HTML standard. It allows page-writing practices
Advances in Computational Intelligence: Theory And Applications Computational Intelligence (CI) is a recently emerging area in fundamental and applied research, exploiting a number of advanced information processing technologies that mainly embody neural networks, fuzzy logic and evolutionary computation. With a major concern to exploiting the tolerance for imperfection, uncertainty, and partial truth to...
