The field of nuclear medicine is undergoing rapid expansion, and is evolving into diagnostic molecular imaging. During recent years, dual-modality imaging with PET/CT has gained acceptance and this is currently the fastest-growing technique for oncological imaging applications. The glucose analogue FDG has held its place in diagnostic oncology, assessment of myocardial viability and diagnosis of neuro-degenerative disorders. Peptides have become even more important as imaging agents. The accuracy of hepatobiliary scintigraphy has been enhanced by cholecystokinin. The use of ACE inhibitors in the evaluation of renovascular hypertension has become the standard in renography. New instrumentation has led to faster scanners, and computer development to better image processing software. Automatic processing is more common, and standardization of protocols can be accomplished easily. The field of gene imaging has progressed, although routine clinical applications are not yet available. The present text, supplemented with many detailed and informative illustrations, represents an adjunct to the standard knowledge of diagnostic nuclear medicine and provides both the student and the professional with an overview of developments during the past decade.Review:
From the reviews of the second edition:
From RAD Magazine, July 2006:
'There have been many recent advances since the publication of the first edition of this excellent book. This second edition gives an updated review of the current applications of modern nuclear medicine and is recommended to all who are involved in medical imaging and also to those involved in the clinical care of oncology patients.'
"The aim of this excellent book is to present many of the advances around the turn of the century and to provide an update of the field of diagnostic nuclear medicine. ... This book is well written, concise, and includes numerous figures and images to better inform the reader. The paper is of a high quality, which allows for a good reproduction of figures and images. I highly recommend this book to nuclear medicine specialists, radiologists, interested students and physicians." (Mei Tian, Oncology, Vol. 70 (5), 2006)
"This book has an interesting and original structure and provides succinct and readily intelligible information about the clinical and technical aspects of modern diagnostic nuclear medicine. The reader is provided with much useful information on definition of protocols and evaluation of images. This publication should become a valuable resource for nuclear physicians, radiologists, residents and technologists ... . It will also be of use to all specialists with an interest in nuclear medicine, including those not yet routinely involved in the field." (Vincenzo Cuccurullo and Pier Francesco Rambaldi, European Journal of Nuclear Medicine & Molecular Imaging, Vol. 34, 2007)
