This new edition of Nuclear Medicine in the popular Case Review series offers self-assessment preparation for board reviews to help residents and recertifying radiologists stay on top in their field! Dr. Harvey Zeissman presents 200 case studies—covering hot topics like PET/CT, SPECT/CT, and radiation safety—with images and questions to refine and reinforce your understanding of nuclear medicine.

• Review 200 cases organized by level of difficulty, with questions, answers, and rationales that mimic the format of certification exams.
• Prepare for the challenges you’ll face on the exam and in practice with visual guidance from 400 images.
• Find more in-depth information easily thanks to cross-references to The Requisites: Nuclear Medicine.

• Stay current thanks to new images and/or updated questions, answers, and discussions for nearly every case study.
• Master the applications of nuclear medicine in bone medicine, oncology, neurology, and cardiac medicine with 40 new PET/CT cases and 5 new SPECT/CT cases.
• Manage risks thanks to 10 radiation safety cases that cover this major concern in nuclear medicine practice.
