About the Book
Nuclear medicine continues to expand as an important medical imaging specialty both in clinical service and as a tool for non-invasive clinical research. Nuclear Medicine in Radiological Diagnosis is an attempt to reflect the interdependence of the two disciplines, nuclear medicine and radiology. To achieve this aim, authors have been selected for their dual expertise. Of course, and as nuclear medicine physicians are quick to point out, there is more to the specialty than imaging-radionuclide therapy and invitro studies for example-so many chapters have been written by dedicated nuclear medicine specialists. Other areas, many in endocrinology and tumor imaging, are almost exclusively the domain of specialist nuclear medicine departments. This new clinical reference provides an essential resource for all those working in the field of nuclear medicine and clinical imaging.
