Nuclear Cardiac Imaging Excerpt :

Nuclear cardiac imaging is the diagnostic technique of using radiology and chemical markers to track cardiac performance. These imaging studies provide a wide range of information about the heart, including how much the heart contracts, the amount of blood supply to the heart and whether parts of the heart muscle are alive or dead. This is essential information for cardiologists, and nuclear imaging has become an increasingly important part of the cardiologist's armoury of diagnostic techniques. Iskandrian's text has become a leading book in the field and the fourth edition will continue the tradition. The text is updated throughout to reflect the many advances in the field, and, as a new feature, each chapter concludes with a question and answer session on important and difficult clinical issues.

Clinical Nuclear Medicine Excerpt :

In the new edition of this very successful book, European and North American experts present the state of the art in diagnostic and therapeutic radionuclide procedures. The aim is to examine established and emerging clinical applications in detail, rather than to consider everything included in the comprehensive texts already available within the field. This “practical” approach ensures that the book will be a valuable guide for nuclear medicine physicians, technologists, students, and interested clinicians alike. This edition of Clinical Nuclear Medicine has been extensively revised to take account of recent developments. The roles of SPECT/CT, PET/CT, and PET/MRI are clearly explained and illustrated, and the coverage extended to encompass, for example, novel PET tracers and therapeutic radionuclides, advanced techniques of brain imaging, and the development of theranostics. Readers will be fully persuaded of the ever-increasing value of nuclear medicine techniques in depicting physiology and function and complementing anatomic modalities such as CT, MRI, and ultrasound.
