    Exploring a technology that is significantly impacting the noninvasive evaluation of the physiology and anatomy of tumors, as well as the diagnosis of infectious processes and cardiac diseases, this source presents recent advances and clinical applications of sequential, single session single-photon emission computed tomography and computed tomography imaging. This source is written by pioneers in hybrid imaging and offers authoritative sections on state-of-the-art breakthroughs in sentinel lymph node identification, cardiac imaging, and the study and treatment of a variety of disorders including lymphoma, thyroid and parathyroid tumors, neuroendocrine tumors, prostatic cancer, and bone metastases.
