PET/CT epitomizes a marriage made in imaging heaven. The ability of PET to image cellular metabolism combined with the anatomic detail of CT represents a transformational approach to imaging neoplasia and other diseases. The task of PET/CT image interpretation is also challenging. This stems from the need to be highly skilled in both nuclear medicine and body/brain imaging. The impact of this technology has been enormous in cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, and epilepsy; now representing an integral component of the standard workup and management of these patients. Editing a book and writing definitive chapters on particular subjects is not a comfortable task. It is most difficult to decide what not to emphasize. I believe Drs. Kramer, Ko, Ponzo and Mourtzikos and their co-authors have succeeded magnificently in capturing the essentials of the particular topics. The book conveys a definite perspective from those engaged in a busy clinical practice seeing a spectrum of disease entities. All of the authors have enormous experience in PET/CT as well as being highly skilled clinicians. Readers will gain a firm grasp of the subject matter that is pertinent to the applications of PET/CT in the clinical milieu. I have been impressed with the growing list of purposes for which PET/CT has been recommended and approved. Such adoption indicates the vitality of this unique device. Obviously there will be continued growth and refinement in the field. My intuition tells me this will be the first of many subsequent editions. Position Emission Tomography-Computed Tomography: A Disease-Oriented Approach will serve as a most useful and lucid reference for those engaged in learning and using PET/CT. As the former Chairman of Radiology at NYU I am particularly proud that the majority of PET/CT expertise in this book springs from the well of outstanding individuals in our Radiology Department. I would like to toast the contributors for their outstanding work and am honored to be acquainted with them both professionally and personally
