This book is a clinically oriented, up-to-date, and in-depth review of  the various applications of FDG-PET/CT and PET/MR in cardiovascular  diseases with emphasis on the current available evidence. Positron  emission tomography (PET) imaging with fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) has seen  increased applications in cardiovascular diseases over the last  decades. Its utility is already established in a wide range of  conditions, including myocardial viability imaging, assessment of  inflammatory diseases such as sarcoidosis and vasculitis, as well as  imaging of infectious processes, such as infective endocarditis and  cardiac implantable electronic device infection. In addition, there are  several emerging indications such as the imaging of left ventricular  assisting device infection and native valve endocarditis as well as new  applications under investigation.
The first section of the book  reviews the technical basis of cardiovascular PET/CT and PET/MR imaging  as well as cardiac metabolism. The following chapters each present  specific pathologies, presenting epidemiology, pathophysiology, and  diagnostic strategies, along with high quality clinical cases to support  the discussion. The final chapter is a review of 15 interesting and  clinically relevant cases.
This is an ideal guide for nuclear  medicine physicians, cardiologists, radiologists, residents,  post-graduate fellows, and technologists.
