About this book

Nuclear Oncology: Pathophysiology and Clinical Applications is a comprehensive textbook covering the increasing role of radionuclide-based technologies in the management of oncologic patients, with disease-oriented chapters giving a detailed overview of current indications and developments. Topics covered include instrumentation, physics, radiobiology, radioguided surgery, and radionuclide therapy, which is discussed with useful separate topics describing the importance of organ function assessment after cancer therapies in the heart, lung, kidney and the gastro-intestinal tract. Additionally, significant aspects of cancer biology and molecular imaging are discussed, as well as appropriate tracers for both single- and positron-emitting radionuclides. Individual chapters in the book focus on the most common cancers occurring in adults and children, detailing radionuclide procedures within an integrated framework identifying the information required for effective treatment of specific tumors. These clinical chapters provide a description of the epidemiology, etiology, histologic and pathophysiologic classification, prognosis, treatment, and most common outcome for each type of cancer.

With contributions from a group of internationally-distinguished practitioners, Nuclear Oncology: Pathophysiology and Clinical Applications serves as a valuable compendium of knowledge for nuclear medicine physicians and radiologists and other clinicians involved in the care and management of cancer patients.


Reviews

From the reviews:

“This well-written treatise on nuclear oncology will help nuclear physicians and radiologists who practice nuclear oncology to gain an in-depth understanding of how far this discipline has evolved. The book will also enable scientists who are involved in nuclear oncology research or clinical research to grasp the breadth of the discipline.” (Franklin C. Wong, The Journal of Nuclear Medicine, Vol. 54 (8), August, 2013)

“This is one of only a few books dedicated to this emerging field. … The intended audience is practitioners in nuclear medicine, especially those with a significant interest in oncology, and how nuclear medicine procedures, imaging, and therapy can be integrated into patient management. … This is an outstanding and thorough review of the applications of nuclear medicine to the diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment of patients with cancer. … It will be a valuable resource for practitioners in the field of nuclear medicine.” (Bennett S. Greenspan, Doody’s Book Reviews, April, 2013)

“This book is intended to provide the state-of-the-art in the fast-growing field of nuclear oncology … . this book is strongly recommended for nuclear physicians as well as for radiologists, oncologists and other clinicians who are involved in performing and interpreting nuclear oncological studies. It should be present in all libraries of nuclear medicine departments, representing an important source of knowledge and learning for residents and practitioners.” (Luigi Mansi and Vincenzo Cuccurullo, European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, Vol. 40, 2013)
