In this updated third edition of the Atlas of Nuclear Cardiology, the editors have collaborated with over a dozen leading authorities to capture the most up-to-date and pertinent information in the field of nuclear cardiology. This four-color atlas includes detailed legends and extensive reference listings for hundreds of illustrations. Diagnostic algorithms and schematic diagrams integrated with nuclear cardiology procedures are generously interspersed with color images to emphasize key concepts in cardiovascular physiology and metabolism. Topics covered include nuclear imaging, myocardial blood flow, risk stratification, patient management, myocardial innervation, and many others. Imaging in the emergency department and atherosclerotic plaque imaging are examples of new topics covered in this edition. The four-color format combined with the breadth of information it contains make this book an invaluable resource for physicians, cardiologists, and all professionals involved in the study and treatment of nuclear cardiology.\
