This definitive and comprehensive 2 volume text-reference book is essential reading for those who are primarily involved in the practice of nuclear medicine. Over 180 contributors, all of them internationally recognized authorities, focus on current and newly available radionuclide techniques and directly apply them to clinical practice. Covering all of the major body systems and organs in which nuclear medicine procedures are used, the book takes a disease oriented approach and this new edition features the latest advances in diagnostic and therapeutic modalities used in the detection and treatment of cancer, heart disease, neurologic disorders, trauma and other common and less common diseases. There are major revisions/ new chapters in the areas of brain imaging, movement disorders, stroke, lymphoma therapy, bone density, non-neurologic drug discovery, molecular imaging, cost/benefit analysis.
An authoritative and comprehensive account of all nuclear medicine modalities and their clinical applications. Provides the trainee with a knowledge base sufficient to pass professional certification examinations and provides the practitioner with a quick reference on all currently available diagnostic and therapeutic imaging procedures.
Over 2,000 high quality illustrations of common and rarely encountered diseases and abnormalities
Provides a comprehensive visual guide to help the practitioner and trainee identify and interpret diagnostic problems.
Emphasis throughout is on how to perform and interpret a test rather than on the technical aspects of the procedure. Provides the practitioner and trainee with a means of solving the kind of diagnostic problems that occur in day-to-day practice.
Practical considerations such as image interpretation, image optimization techniques, pitfalls in technical acquisition and interpretation stressed throughout. Will provide the trainee and practitioner with a new and improved knowledge in order to improve clinical decision- making.
International team of editors and authors. Provides the reader with a fresh, global perspective on the latest diagnostic and therapeutic techniques.
