About this book

The recent revolution in molecular biology offers exciting new opportunities for targeted radionuclide therapy. This up-to-date, comprehensive book, written by world-renowned experts, discusses the basic principles of radionuclide therapy, explores in detail the available treatments, explains the regulatory requirements, and examines likely future developments. The full range of clinical applications is considered, including thyroid cancer, hematological malignancies, brain tumors, liver cancer, bone and joint disease, and neuroendocrine tumors. The combination of theoretical background and practical information will provide the reader with all the knowledge required to administer radionuclide therapy safely and effectively in the individual patient. Careful attention is also paid to the role of the therapeutic nuclear physician in coordinating a diverse multidisciplinary team, which is central to the safe provision of treatment.

Reviews

“The text can be considered an up to date encyclopaedia of therapeutic nuclear medicine in which it is possible to find almost all the information needed to work well in this field. Although research continually provides new tools, this publication will for many years remain a pivotal book in the library of all departments working in nuclear medicine. Moreover, the book is also of interest to residents and professionals in nuclear medicine and to all physicians involved in oncology.” (Barbara Russo and Luigi Mansi, European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, Vol. 43, 2016)

“This book, well-organized into 12 chapters, is the first comprehensive updated therapeutic book of nuclear medicine … . The figures are clear and superb in quality, and the tables are useful to demonstrate the most salient points. … the information provided is sufficient and stated clearly. This book should be the ideal reference for the trainees as well as practitioners in the fields of not only nuclear medicine but also oncology, family as well as internal medicine.” (E. Edmund Kim, Journal of Nuclear Medicine, November, 2015)

“This comprehensive new textbook offers authoritative coverage of the current state of the art in the field. … The textbook provides all of the background knowledge required to safely and effectively treat patients with radionuclide therapy and will become an essential benchbook for any nuclear medicine department involved in radionuclide therapy. … will provide oncology, medical physics, radiotherapy and pharmacy departments with a definitive reference guide to this rapidly expanding area of clinical practice.” (Andy Scarsbrook, RAD Magazine, August, 2015)
