Derived from the critically acclaimed reference PET: Molecular Imaging and Its Biological Applications, edited by Michael E. Phelps, Ph.D., this handbook provides a clear and concise introduction to the physics and instrumentation aspects of PET imaging. Comprised of select material from the parent volume, this book is gives the reader a solid understanding of PET fundamentals, including how PET data are collected and formed into an image. Other topics include basic physics, detector technology used in modern PET scanners, data acquisition, 3-D reconstruction, and methods for evaluating the performance of PET systems.
