920 top medical experts on Positron-Emission Tomography across 44 countries and 34 U.S. states, including 881 MDs (Physicians). This is based on an objective analysis of their Scientific Publications, Clinical Trials, Medicare, and NIH Grants.

  1. Positron-Emission Tomography: An imaging technique using compounds labelled with short-lived positron-emitting radionuclides (such as carbon-11, nitrogen-13, oxygen-15 and fluorine-18) to measure cell metabolism. It has been useful in study of soft tissues such as cancer; cardiovascular system; and brain. single-photon emission-computed tomography is closely related to positron emission tomography, but uses isotopes with longer half-lives and resolution is lower.
  2. Clinical guidelines are the recommended starting point to understand initial steps and current protocols in any disease or procedure:
