Reviews

“This book is an attempt to address this issue and provide information about nuclear medicine procedures and explain the commonly used terms in nuclear medicine and radiation protection. … a useful addition to nuclear medicine literature … it is more likely to be used by trainees in nuclear medicine and radiology rather than patients and other non-nuclear medicine related healthcare professionals.” (Alp Notghi, RAD Magazine, March, 2015)

“The book can be used as a quick reference book for educating and increasing the awareness and removing the apprehensions about nuclear medicine among common people. Simple language and good illustrations make the book attractive to all kind of readers, with a need to popularize the science of nuclear medicine. … the author is successful in his endeavor for educating and popularizing nuclear medicine among patients, the public, physicians and health care professionals at their desired level.” (Shivanand Bhushan, Indian Journal of Nuclear Medicine, Vol. 29 (4), October-December, 2014)
