This definitive and comprehensive 2 volume text-reference book is essential reading for those who are primarily involved in the practice of nuclear medicine. Over 180 contributors, all of them internationally recognized authorities, focus on current and newly available radionuclide techniques and directly apply them to clinical practice. Covering all of the major body systems and organs in which nuclear medicine procedures are used, the book takes a disease oriented approach and this new edition features the latest advances in diagnostic and therapeutic modalities used in the detection and treatment of cancer, heart disease, neurologic disorders, trauma and other common and less common diseases. There are major revisions: new chapters in the areas of brain imaging, movement disorders, stroke, lymphoma therapy, bone density, non-neurologic drug discovery, molecular imaging, cost/benefit analysis.
