Radiology Review:

"The Pathophysiologic Basis of Nuclear Medicine, second edition, is one of the most in-depth and comprehensive textbooks on nuclear medicine. It considers the clinical problems of patients using available historical and laboratory data and then recommends a problem solving approach with nuclear medicine. The author is especially qualified to edit this textbook, as he is trained in both pathology and nuclear medicine. His depth of knowledge in the pathologic basis of disease and his many clinical insights are evident throughout this textbook. ... This attractively designed and illustrated hardbound textbook contains 23 chapters of well-organized material that is clearly and succinctly written. ... The book clearly illustrates how to advance one's diagnostic reading skills by combining physiologic information with high-quality nuclear medicine examinations. The Pathophysiologic Basis of Nuclear Medicine is a 'must have' book for all professionals dealing with nuclear medicine procedures. ... " (Michael J. Blend, PhD, DO; Radiology Feb 2008)
