About this book

The modern era of radionuclide imaging and therapy is well into its seventh decade. During this era, many national and international textbooks have been published in an attempt to educate not only the practitioners of our medical discipline, but also referring physicians and medical students. Some of the more recent large multic- tural texts, such as those by Ell and Ghambir, Sandler et al. and Henkin et al. , provide us with very comprehensive reference sources while some of the smaller texts totally writtenbytwo or threeindividuals,e. g. Mettler &Guiberteauand Ziessman,O’M- ley & Thrall, have achieved popularity with radiology residents and other physicians in training. The concept of Clinical Nuclear Medicine arose 3 years ago from a conversation between the editors, who have been close friends for many years. We have always felt that our relationship epitomizes one of the major strengths of nuclear medicine, which is the very close ties and spirit of educational cooperation that exist between international colleagues. We all share the same aim of doing whatever we can to op- mize patient care whether it be by introducing new pharmaceuticals and inst- ments or by developing new techniques or approaches to performing our broad spectrum of clinical procedures. Nuclear medicine physicians have almost uniformly been willing to share their expertise at national and international meetings. The - ternational nuclear medicine community, unlike many other larger specialty areas, has remained relatively small. It was within this spirit that Clinical Nuclear Medicine was born.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Clinical Nuclear Medicine … focuses on the universal state of the art in both diagnostic and therapeutic radionuclide methodology. … This book is easily readable, with presentation of essential points and plentiful references, and the quality of the figures and tables is excellent. … is a useful guide to students, technologists, and practitioners in nuclear medicine and radiology, as well as to general physicians who request nuclear diagnosis or treatment. … will be a welcome contribution to the bookshelf of nuclear medicine or radiology clinics." (E. Edmund Kim, Journal of Nuclear Medicine, Vol. 49 (6), 2008)

"Clinical Nuclear Medicine is a collaborative work that integrates the knowledge, excitement, and expertise of nuclear medicine professionals from around the world into a comprehensive and readable text for practitioners and trainees … . The book’s compact size makes it a convenient reference to keep nearby. … This text is just the right size for clinical practitioners and trainees who are looking for a practical readable text on clinical nuclear medicine." (Karen A. Kurdziel, Radiology, Issue 1, 2009)

“This is a comprehensive textbook that covers all relevant clinical applications in nuclear medicine. … Readers will note that this new multiauthored text has tried to move away from orthodox texts. … ‘Clinical Nuclear Medicine’ is … easy to handle and consult. … Figures and diagrams are clear and informative. … this is a very good textbook for nuclear medicine practitioners, but in particular it will attract nuclear medicine residents and fellows and entice them to the field.” (Ignasi Carrió, European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, August, 2009)
