A thorough, practical review of nuclear cardiology -– covering everything from when to refer and which test to prescribe to interpreting results

Updated with new and emerging techniques

"The authors have succeeded in providing a guide to understanding the basic principles of cardiovascular nuclear imaging, learning its applications, and interpreting the results that is ideally suited for cardiology and radiology trainees. 3 Stars."--Doody's Review Service

Nuclear Cardiology: Practical Applications provides concise, expert guidance on indications for nuclear cardiology procedures, specification of tests, and interpretation of results. Completely updated with the latest techniques and procedures, this well-illustrated guide is essential to clinicians who require a practical understanding of this specialty as well as trainees, including cardiology fellows and radiology residents. It is also a must-have review for anyone seeking certification or recertification in nuclear cardiology.

Features:

  • Coverage of new and emerging techniques in nuclear medicine, such as fatty acid and neurohumoral imaging, the use of hybrid technology, and cardiac positron emission tomograhic (PET) imaging
  • Emphasis on indications for tests helps you decide which nuclear test is the best choice for a particular problem
  • Valuable perspective of nuclear cardiology’s role in patient management
  • Review questions at the end of each chapter assure understanding of the material and prepare you for certification testing
  • NEW chapters on quality initiatives in nuclear cardiology and the appropriate use of SPECT and PET procedures
  • New: Extensive Q&A
  • Full-color insert of radiograph images
