International educational textbook gives this work worldwide relevance
Incorporation of PET into each organ system or disease specific chapter
Offers the broadest possible spectrum of clinical procedure
This work has true international scope, being a unique European/American joint venture that focuses on the state of the art in both diagnostic and therapeutic radionuclide methodology.
Employing a highly practical methodology, pertinent clinical applications are emphasized rather than attempting to cover everything included in the several large comprehensive texts available in the field.
This practical approach should make it an essential guide to professionals.
The modern practice of nuclear medicine is now well into its seventh decade. Its strength in depicting physiology and function has always complemented the subject’s sister anatomic modalities such as CT, MRI and ultrasound.
With the incredible development of PET/CT, this is evident now more than ever.
This international educational textbook splits its chapters between US and European authors and includes a broad spectrum of clinical procedure.
