About this book

Nuclear medicine plays a crucial role in patient care and this book is an essential guide for all practitioners to the many techniques that inform clinical management. The first part covers the scientific basis of nuclear medicine, the rest of the book deals with clinical applications. With a particular emphasis throughout on the practice of nuclear medicine, real-life practical problems encountered in nuclear medicine both in clinical practice and in the introduction of new techniques are addressed.

Following on the success of the previous edition, this book is also expanded by covering areas of development in nuclear medicine, such as PET, methods of tumor imaging and data processing. All illustrations for this new edition reflect current standards of image quality.

This practical approach results in a book which is invaluable to the radiologist, physician, physicist or technologist starting in nuclear medicine but also contains up-to-date advice for the most experienced practitioner.

Reviews

From the reviews of the third edition:

"This third edition of a popular text provides an ideal overview of nuclear medicine. The initial chapters provide a clear, concise explanation of the science behind the technology before proceeding to detailed practical information on clinical applications according to organ systems. The inclusion of analysis techniques and problems encountered add to the usefulness of the book as both a reference and a day-to-day guide. … It is certainly a book that would soon become well thumbed in any nuclear medicine department!" (Dr. E. A. Jones, RAD Magazine, September, 2006)

"The intention of the editors and co-authors was to present an overview of the present technical state of the art of nuclear medicine … . This book has been thoroughly updated; it contains 17 chapters with 222 figures including 17 color plates. … In summary, the book provides up-to-date information on practical nuclear medicine. It can be recommended to students, residents, and physicians in related fields to enhance their awareness of the benefits and limitations of imaging certain diseases." (Mei Tian, Oncology, Vol. 70 (5), 2006)
