Overview


The gold standard text-reference Diagnostic Nuclear Medicine is now in its Fourth Edition--with a sharp clinical focus, a streamlined new single-volume format, and a very attractive price. Written by the top authorities in the specialty, this brand-new edition offers encyclopedic coverage of clinically relevant developments in nuclear medicine--including instrumentation, radiopharmaceuticals, and applications. Readers will find the latest on PET, molecular imaging, SPECT myocardial perfusion imaging, monoclonal antibody therapy, and the use of functional imaging studies in oncology. This edition has been trimmed from two volumes to one, so that readers can find exactly what they need quickly, without cross-checking between volumes.
