    "The second edition of the Atlas for Clinical Positron Emission Tomography written by experienced leaders in two continents is a complete update of the principles and practice of clinical PET and PET/CT, the most exciting advances in medical imaging in the past Cited by: After treatment response assessment with positron emission tomography (PET) was developed a first trial assessing the feasibility of PET-guided adaptive treatment was conducted. Quality of life during-treatment assessments could be used similarly to organs-at-risk and tumor during-treatment assessment for adaptive : Tim Lautenschlaeger, Martha Matuszak, Feng-Ming (Spring) Kong.

• Positron emission tomography (PET) is a technique that measures physiological function by looking at blood flow, metabolism, neurotransmitters, and radiolabelled drugs. PET offers quantitative analyses, allowing relative changes over time to be monitored as a disease process evolves or in response to a specific stimulus.
