The SNMMI Technologist Section has just released the latest book in the SNMMI-TS Quality and Safety Series: PET/CT in Oncology 2021: Part 1.
“According to the World Health Organization, cancer is the leading cause of death globally. Early detection leads to early treatment, which gives the patient a greater chance of survival,” states Jessica Williams, MS, CNMT, RT(N), FSNMMI-TS, chair of the SNMMI-TS Publications Committee. “For this reason, we chose PET/CT in Oncology 2021 as the third topic in our Quality, Safety, and Dose Optimization Mini-Book Series.”
This is Part 1 of 2 books on this topic. Chapters follow a standard format, including incidence, etiology, epidemiology, histopathology, conventional diagnostic procedures, imaging, technical recommendations, and references/suggested readings. It will be an excellent addition to every professional’s library.
All SNMMI-TS members have free access to the PDF version and the interactive online edition and receive a 50% discount on the printed book, available in the SNMMI Store. “This book comes at a time where institutions are witnessing unprecedented numbers of PET referrals,” remarks Williams. “Nuclear medicine professionals performing PET/CT in Oncology 2021 must have the most up-to-date scientific and technical information to produce and interpret high-quality data to support optimal patient care.”
This is the third book in the SNMMI Technologist Section Publications Committee’s series dedicated to single nuclear medicine procedures or imaging categories. Other topics currently available to download include Myocardial Perfusion Imaging (2016) and Abdominal Imaging (2017). PET/CT Oncology Part 2 is currently in production.
