About this book

Introduction

This book provides all the information required for the optimal use of nuclear medicine techniques, which are undergoing rapid development yet remain underutilized. Each chapter focuses on one particular clinical system or disease area. The first section of each chapter illustrates normal patterns observed on commonly and uncommonly performed scans as a reference and explains when and how the procedures should be performed. The following section illustrates both the imaging patterns of different diseases and the diagnostic role of individual studies. Comparisons with other modalities are provided, and the rationale for and effective utilization of each study are discussed. The volume includes  near 250 case reviews. In addition, the normal patterns on relevant morphologic modalities are documented in an appendix. The book is directed at Nuclear Medicine physicians and technologists with different levels of training and expertise and also at radiologists who practice nuclear medicine and radiology residents.

Reviews

“Mainly directed to students, trainees and technologists in nuclear medicine and radiology (the last if practicing the field), this book can also be of interest to practitioners, who may find easy and fast information helpful for their routine work. Therefore, this volume could find a worthy place in the drawer or desk of every nuclear medicine diagnostic lab.” (Luigi Mansi, European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, Vol. 46, 2019)

“The book itself is well pro­duced. Most of the illustra­tions are of a high quality … . useful for our radiographers rotating through nuclear medicine, as they will be able to dip into it in quiet moments in the department. This is a function that it will fulfil well.” (Colin Todd, RAD Magazine, March, 2019)
