Product Description


From the reviews of the third edition:

"This third edition of a popular text provides an ideal overview of nuclear medicine. The initial chapters provide a clear, concise explanation of the science behind the technology before proceeding to detailed practical information on clinical applications according to organ systems. The inclusion of analysis techniques and problems encountered add to the usefulness of the book as both a reference and a day-to-day guide. … It is certainly a book that would soon become well thumbed in any nuclear medicine department!" (Dr. E. A. Jones, RAD Magazine, September, 2006)

"The intention of the editors and co-authors was to present an overview of the present technical state of the art of nuclear medicine … . This book has been thoroughly updated; it contains 17 chapters with 222 figures including 17 color plates. … In summary, the book provides up-to-date information on practical nuclear medicine. It can be recommended to students, residents, and physicians in related fields to enhance their awareness of the benefits and limitations of imaging certain diseases." (Mei Tian, Oncology, Vol. 70 (5), 2006)

From the Back Cover

Nuclear medicine plays a crucial role in patient care and this book is an essential guide for all practitioners to the many techniques that inform clinical management. The first part covers the scientific basis of nuclear medicine, the rest of the book deals with clinical applications. With a particular emphasis throughout on the practice of nuclear medicine, real-life practical problems encountered in nuclear medicine both in clinical practice and in the introduction of new techniques are addressed.

Following on the success of the previous edition, this book is also expanded by covering areas of development in nuclear medicine, such as PET, methods of tumor imaging and data processing. All illustrations for this new edition reflect current standards of image quality.

This practical approach results in a book which is invaluable to the radiologist, physician, physicist or technologist starting in nuclear medicine but also contains up-to-date advice for the most experienced practitioner.

Format: Paperback
A clear, concise work which gives all details required for the day to day performance of nuclear medicine examinations.
Written by experts, this second edition builds on the value of the first, updating and reviewing where neccessary.
Each chapter is focussed on a body system with easy-to-read tables which contain the vital elements of each procedure. A useful section is included on equipment, quality control and radiation protection.
This book is a must have for all nuclear medicine departments and at the price represents amazingly good value for money.

Is a very useful book providing a wide range of information appropriate to the clinical setting. Inc anatomy and physiology relevant to imaging and radation protection. Previous editions have been good, this provides updated information, comparing various NM pros & cons and how other imaging techniques may complement NM imaging. Fairly easy to read and good selection of illustrations and diagrams.
Bought this book having entered a new role within NM and it is proving to be a very good companion!

HASH(0x968b7eac) out of 5 stars Nuclear Medicine is losing ground 21 July 2013
By huib vriesendorp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Nuclear Medicine fails to develop properly defined quantitative units, such as absorbed energy in cc's of target volume. Bone scans, cardiac diagnostic studies, Pet scans are semi-quantative at best and in my opinion will not be able to rescue this vanishing field.
