About this book

The field of nuclear medicine is expanding rapidly, with the development of exciting new diagnostic methods and treatments relevant to a variety of diseases. This growth is closely associated with significant advances in radiation physics. In this book, acknowledged experts explain the basic principles of radiation physics in relation to nuclear medicine and examine important novel approaches in the field. The first section is devoted to what might be termed the "building blocks" of nuclear medicine, including the mechanisms of interaction between radiation and matter and Monte Carlo codes. In subsequent sections, radiation sources for medical applications, radiopharmaceutical development and production, and radiation detectors are discussed in detail. New frontiers are then explored, including the PET magnifying probe, improved algorithms for image reconstruction, biokinetic models, and voxel phantoms for internal dosimetry. Both trainees and experienced practitioners and researchers will find this book to be an invaluable source of up-to-date information.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book represents a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of radiation physics, very useful for the nuclear medicine community. The publication is suitable both for trainees and experienced seniors … . The references at the end of all chapters are very complete and exhaustive and could be useful to the reader who wants to investigate any argument more deeply. In conclusion, we suggest this publication to all laboratories involved in diagnostic and/or therapeutic nuclear medicine, as a reference book useful both for physicians and physicists.” (Kalevi Kairemo, A. Claudio Traino and Luigi Mansi, European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, Vol. 39, 2012)
