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 nuclear medicine, this brand-new edition offers encyclopedic, clinically oriented coverage of both instrumentation and applications--from gamma cameras to the use of functional imaging studies in oncology.

Diagnostic Nuclear Medicine, Fourth Edition guides practitioners through key developments in fourteen areas--instrumentation, radiopharmaceuticals, cardiovascular imaging, pulmonary imaging, bone imaging, gastroenterology, hematology, endocrinology, neurology, nephrology, oncology, transplantation, pediatrics, and inflammation. Readers will find the latest on PET, molecular imaging, SPECT myocardial perfusion imaging, and monoclonal antibody therapy. If it isn't relevant, isn't truly clinical, it isn't in the Fourth Edition.

One of the best features of this edition is its new size. Diagnostic Nuclear Medicine has been trimmed from two volumes to one, so that readers can find exactly what they need quickly, without cross-checking between volumes.
