Title:Quantitative Analysis in Nuclear Medicine Imaging [electronic resource]
Author(s): Habib Zaidi
Date:2006
Publisher:Boston, MA : Springer US
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book provides a review of image analysis techniques as they are applied in the field of diagnostic and therapeutic nuclear medicine. Driven in part by the remarkable increase in computing power and its ready and inexpensiveavailability, this is a relatively new yet rapidly expanding field. Likewise, although the use of radionuclides for diagnosis and therapy has origins dating back almost to the discovery of natural radioactivity itself, radionuclidetherapy and, in particular, targeted radionucl ide therapy has only recently emerged as a promising approach for therapy of cancer and, to a lesser extent, other diseases. As effort has, therefore, been made to place the reviewsprovided in this book in a broader context. The effort to do this is refle cted by the inclusion of introductory chapters that address basic principles of nuclear medicine imaging, followed by overview of issues that are closely relatedto quantitative nuclear imaging and its potential role in diagnostic and therapeutic applicati ons. The different chapters discuss the basic principles and various steps required for obtaining quantitatively accurate data from nuclearmedicine images including data collection methods and algorithms used to correct them for physical degrading factors (e.g. collimator response, attenuation, scatter, partial volume effect), and image reconstruction algorithms(analytic, iterative) as well as image processing and analysis techniques as their clinical and research applications in neurology, cardiology and oncology. Some algorithms are described and illustrated with some useful features andclinical applications. Other potential applications of quantitative image analysis such as image-guided radiation therapy are also discussed
