About this book


Nuclear medicine and lung diseases is intended for chest physicians who use nuclear medicine techniques in clinical practice and for nuclear physicians who perform tests in patients with chest disorders. The book is valuable for clinical practice and describes the interrelationship between the two specialities. Chest physicians will be better able to understand the significance of the results of nuclear medicine and nuclear physicians will appreciate more fully the clinical contexts in which nuclear techniques are of value. In the first part the physical and technical principles of nuclear medicine and the physiopathological bases are developed. In the second part the applications of nuclear medicine are presented in separate chapters on chest diseases - diffuse, infiltrative lung diseases, lung tumors, infections, pulmonary embolism, lung function and surgery, AIDS, lung transplantation, chronic obstructive bronchopulmonary diseases and therapy. Nuclear medicine and lung diseases represents the work of 15 French authors led by three main authors.
