About this book


Upon its initial publication, Pediatric Nuclear Medicine emerged as the standard text in its field. Now in its third edition, this book has been thoroughly revised and updated to incorporate the most cutting-edge developments in pediatric nuclear medicine. Additions to the text reflect the latest advances in PET, SPECT, and oncology while still retaining the fundamentals that anchor its distinguished reputation. Pediatric Nuclear Medicine, Third Edition, is an excellent resource for residents in training, as well as any physician whose nuclear medicine practice includes children.
Updates to the third edition include:
-Discussions and examples of PET in pediatric oncology, neurology, and cardiology
-A thoroughly updated chapter on SPECT, including its latest applications
-Consolidated and revised chapters on brain imaging and bone disorders
-Expanded coverage of oncologic imaging
