It is updated with new and emerging techniques. "The authors have succeeded in providing a guide to understanding the basic principles of cardiovascular nuclear imaging, learning its applications, and interpreting the results that is ideally suited for cardiology and radiology trainees. 3 Stars." ("Doody's Review Service"). "Nuclear Cardiology: Practical Applications" provides concise, expert guidance on indications for nuclear cardiology procedures, specification of tests, and interpretation of results. Completely updated with the latest techniques and procedures, this well-illustrated guide is essential to clinicians who require a practical understanding of this specialty as well as trainees, including cardiology fellows and radiology residents. It is also a must-have review for anyone seeking certification or recertification in nuclear cardiology.It features coverage of new and emerging techniques in nuclear medicine, such as fatty acid and neurohumoral imaging, the use of hybrid technology, and cardiac positron emission tomograhic (PET) imaging. It emphasis on indications for tests helps you decide which nuclear test is the best choice for a particular problem. It includes valuable perspective of nuclear cardiology's role in patient management; review questions at the end of each chapter assure understanding of the material and prepare you for certification testing; chapters on quality initiatives in nuclear cardiology and the appropriate use of SPECT and PET procedures; and, (New) Extensive Q&A Full-color insert of radiograph more
