Overview


As functional imaging continues to inform everyday clinical practice, clinicians need to know more about the quantitative aspects of physiology and pathophysiology. Presented in accessible language, this book integrates the principles and mathematics of measurement with physiological systems to which the quantitative problems are applied. The book discusses the related basic mathematics, the measurement of blood flow, peripheral circulation and microvascular solute transfer, pharmacokinetics routinely used in nuclear medicine, as well as scinitillion detectors, data-processing and quantification. Measurement in the heart, lung, gastro-intestinal tract, liver, spleen, genitourinary tract and brain are discussed.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Robert S. Hellman, MD (Froedtert Hospital)
Description: This book is an exposition of the methods that are used to quantify data obtained from nuclear medicine procedures.
Purpose: The authors realize that most physicians may have only a limited understanding of the methods used to quantify nuclear medicine data, since the most common presentation of these methods assumes more basic science knowledge than most physicians possess. The purposes of this book are to present an understandable derivation of the methodology, and then show how the methodology may be consistently applied to nuclear medicine data. The authors' objectives are largely met, due to straightforward explanations and demonstration of applications in a wide range of organ systems.
Audience: Material in this book is authoritatively presented. The principal audience is nuclear medicine practitioners and residents, not a larger audience as the authors hoped.
Features: The book is divided informally into two sections. The first section is general in scope and provides the basics of quantification, including background mathematical principals and the basics of nuclear medicine for non-specialists. The second section is organized by organ, covering quantification by nuclear medicine techniques for peripheral circulation, cardiac, pulmonary, hepatic, hematologic, renal, cerebral, and skeletal systems. Illustrations and references are appropriate and useful. It concludes with a short series of exercises (with answers) for the readers to test their understanding of some of the book's concepts.
Assessment: I strongly recommend this book to nuclear medicine specialists and medical libraries. The material presented is distinct from other books about nuclear medicine procedures, which usually focus on the clinical relevance of quantified data, rather than how the physiologic parameters are modeled. Readers are very likely to encounter more than one application for which they have used physiologic measurements without a full understanding.
