Hybrid imaging of positron emission tomography pet together with computed tomography ct is rapidly emerging in cardiology this new advanced hybrid imaging modality allows quantification of cardiac perfusion in combination with assessment of coronary anatomy within a single scanning session of less than 45 minutes. New agent gives pet ct a boost despite the superior quality of pet ct imaging adoption of the technology for cardiac imaging has been slowed by the cost and the logistics of producing the agents the centers for medicaid and medicare services currently reimburses existing agents for myocardial pet ct imaging. Cardiac pet and pet ct imaging takes a step by step approach to pet and pet ct instrumentation imaging and protocols beginning with imaging fundamentals and progressing through advanced discussion of specific applications this book is a comprehensive source of cardiac pet and pet ct information. Practice guidelines list the recommendations and practice guidelines of professional organizations regarding the use of rubidium 82 nitrogen 13 ammonia and f 18 fluorodeoxyglucose for cardiac pet and pet ct imaging are summarized on the following pages for indications approved by the centers for medicare and medicaid services cms 1. Cardiac pet and pet ct imaging is a comprehensive informative up to date state of the art textbook on newer cardiac imaging technologies and also provides valuable insight into the future of cardiac imaging the book has 6 parts the first 5 parts or sections are subdivided into several chapters that cover a wide spectrum of presently
