- Publish Date: 1998-01-01
- Binding: Hardcover
Monte Carlo (MC) methods have proved invaluable in developing a range of computer programs to enhance images in different modalities, including PET and SPECT. Monte Carlo Calculations in Nuclear Medicine: Applications in Diagnostic Imaging is the first book to cover applications of MC methods in nuclear medicine, from first principles to current computer applications. Written by international contributors, the book reviews different types of computer code and provides reference software packages. It also demonstrates how MC techniques can be used to evaluate scatter in SPECT and PET imaging, collimation, and image deterioration.
