The book contains black-and-white illustrations.
This second edition has been thoroughly revised and expanded. Tables and illustrations supplement the book throughout and each chapter provides the reader with well-delineated descriptions of the different aspects of physics and radiation biology related to nuclear medicine. The book serves as an excellent text for nuclear medicine residents and technology students to prepare for their Board and Registry examinations. Special features include statistical tests: the Chi-Square test, the student t-test and linear regression, internal dosimetry based on uptake variation, digital computers; data acquisition, filters, breast feeding and DOT regulations and more.
