"The book will be an invaluable tool for clinicians with various specialties, as well as international scientific societies interested to the recent evidence-based data about PET.' ... Furthermore, this is very important manual for all who want to be introduced to meta-analysis. ... this book can be the starting point to learn how to renew data, with an added scientific and didactic stimulus mainly important for young people."
