This invaluable and well-presented text brings together previously fragmented or incompletely elucidated data on the impressive recent advances in orthopedic nuclear medicine. The book begins by acquainting the readers with various anatomic, physiologic, pathologic and technical concepts crucial to understanding orthopedic nuclear medicine and its utilization in clinical practice. Subsequent chapters detail the diagnosis of skeletal infections, trauma, vascular disorders, metabolic and neoplastic bone diseases, soft tissue calcifications and joint disorders. A separate section is devoted to the use of radionuclides in the treatment of bone and joint diseases. A unique feature of this richly illustrated volume is its comprehensive and clinically oriented approach. The book will prove invaluable to all with an interest in diagnostic and therapeutic orthopedics, including radiologists, orthopedists, rheumatologists, pediatricians, other clinicians and nuclear medicine professionals.

Review:

From the reviews:

"..it is one of the best nuclear medicine textbooks and the most complete presentation of the role of nuclear medicine in orthopedics ...This book addresses a difficult topic in nuclear imaging that is often insufficiently covered ba many general textbooks in the field. ..a must have book for all professionals dealing with orthopedic problems....(Michael J. Blend, Radiology, Vol. 239, April 2006).

"This is a fine book that encompasses every aspect of bone physiopathology related to nuclear medicine in orthopaedic surgery. Nicely illustrated and well presented, this book offers comfortable and interesting reading and brings an in-depth insight on the mechanisms of action, the pathology and the pharmacology of the imaging molecules. ... This volume should be available to every orthopaedic surgeon and trainee." (C. Delloye, Acta Orthopaedica Belgica, Vol. 70(6), 2004)

"Despite the emergence of new imaging methods, nuclear medicine and in particular, osseous scintigraphy, preserves a very particular place in osteoarticular exploration. A.H. Elgazzar performs an update of the various applications in this field. ... the author has the requisite merit to produce a synthetic work on the entire gamut of nuclear medicine applications in osteoarticular pathology, intended for a large audience from the point of view of specialists as well as those with some experience." (L. Balabaud, European Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery & Traumatology, Vol. 16, 2006)

"I greatly appreciated it because it provides a comprehensive and extensive analysis of all the important aspects of nuclear orthopaedics. ... Because of the depth and breadth of its approach, the book also enables deeper understanding of the potential of new procedures ... . this book ... can safely be said to document the state of the art in nuclear orthopaedics. ... this book should find a permanent place on the shelves of medical libraries because it provides much information ... ." (L. Mansi, European Journal for Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, Vol. 33, 2006)
