Molecular Imaging in the Clinical Neurosciences
Gerhard Gründer (editor). Humana Press, New York 2012. 400 pages, 119 figures, most in color, 15 tables
In this book in English language extensive knowledge of molecular imaging (especially with positron emission tomography, PET) is taught. The introductory chapters cover the apparatus and the physical and radiochemical foundations of the method. After chapters on different methods of analysis and small animal imaging, applications of PET in the clinical neurosciences take the most space. Discussed are both psychiatric (dementia, mood disorders, schizophrenia, addictions) and neurological disorders (Parkinson’s disease, cardiovascular disease, brain tumors). Detailed information on the book with the ability to download individual chapters can be found on the pages of Springer-Verlag. This book you will of course also get on Amazon.
