"Well organized, understandable, and a quick read, this text is an excellent resource... The book is very affordable, especially considering its value in everyday practice." - Radiology - October 2007 "The current edition has been updated to include hybrid imaging using SPECT/CT and PET/CT. The text covers a full range of nuclear medicine related subject; including instrumentation, radiopharmaceuticals, clinical applications and safety. The updating has brought the text to cutting edge regarding tthe range of clinical proceduresand also includes aspects of radiotherapy in nuclear medicine...the text is lavishly illustrated with a large number of clinical images showing a range of pathologies. Also included are very useful summary tables and 'Pearls and Pitfalls' sections that provide practical advice for different imaging techniques...Overall this is an excellent book with a wide range of coverage that would be of use to clinicians and radiographers/ technologists working in nuclear medicine. I t would be suitable as a reference both for masters level and for final year undergraduates. It would also be of use for anyone studying nuclear medicine at registar level." Radiology, Oct 2012 "The? cases presented were very interesting an d illustrations were of the highest quality. I appreciated the 'pearls and pitfalls' section at the end of each chapter, which were clearly presented and formed good summaries of the key points of each chapter... So, on the final could I invest ?83.99, a definite and resounding yes, if I wanted an excellent written book which will provide a clear and broad review of the essentials of clinical nuclear medicine..." RAD, November 2012 "This is a high-quality introductory book in nuclear medicine that is comprehensive enough to serve as a reference for practitioners, without being too long or too detailed. This book includes revisions that reflect the significant advances in the field in the last six years."- Bennett Greenspan, MD, MS (Medical College of Georgia) 5 star Doody Rating!
