About this book

This Synopsis of Nuclear Medicine Pathophysiology arose from the recognition that there is a need for a compact, readable account of this complex and important subject. The book concisely describes relevant anatomic and physiologic considerations for each organ system and the pathophysiologic features of different relevant diseases and relates them to the scintigraphy of each system. It thereby provides an informative synopsis of the pathophysiologic basis of nuclear medicine and molecular imaging. The volume will serve as a quick reference that will help the reader to understand different diagnostic scintigraphic patterns and to select appropriate treatment modalities based on functional imaging. It will prove useful to undergraduates and postgraduates as well as to practitioners in clinical and research fields.

Reviews

“This book is organized into 15 chapters for a total of 357 pages. Most of the chapters include extremely educational high-quality figures and/or tables. … this book serves as a quick reference that may help readers understand different scintigraphic patterns and select appropriate treatment modalities, on the basis of an understanding of pathophysiology. … a more compact and easily readable text on this complex and important subject.” (Nicola Frega and Luigi Mansi, European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, Vol. 42, 2015)
