About this book

This book presents a comprehensive review of nuclear cardiology principles and concepts necessary to pass the Nuclear Cardiology Technology Specialty Examination. The practice questions are similar in format and content to those found on the Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board (NMTCB) and American Registry of Radiological Technologists (ARRT) examinations, allowing test takers to maximize their chances of success. The book is organized by test sections of increasing difficulty, with over 600 multiple-choice questions covering all areas of nuclear cardiology, including radionuclides, instrumentation, radiation safety, patient care, and diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. Detailed answers and explanations to the practice questions follow. It also includes helpful test-taking tips. Supplementary appendices include commonly used abbreviations and symbols in nuclear medicine, glossary of cardiology terms, and useful websites. Nuclear Cardiology Study Guide is a valuable reference for nuclear medicine technologists, nuclear medicine physicians, and all other imaging professionals in need of a concise review of nuclear cardiology.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This is a tool for self-assessment for technologists preparing to sit for the nuclear cardiology technology specialty exam. The purpose is to provide a study aid to help in preparation for the certification exam in nuclear cardiology. … References are provided for further readings on the topic. Images are in color and are clear in nature. The book includes a section on dealing with text anxiety and how to take a multiple choice test.” (Ann Marie Voslar, Doody’s Book Reviews, February, 2014)
