An excellent introduction to the basic concepts of nuclearmedicine physics
This Third Edition of Essentials of Nuclear MedicinePhysics and Instrumentation expands the finely developedillustrated review and introductory guide to nuclear medicinephysics and instrumentation. Along with simple, progressive, highlyillustrated topics, the authors present nuclear medicine-relatedphysics and engineering concepts clearly and concisely. Included inthe text are introductory chapters on relevant atomic structure,methods of radionuclide production, and the interaction ofradiation with matter. Further, the text discusses the basicfunction of the components of scintillation and non-scintillationdetector systems. An information technology section discusses PACsand DICOM. There is extensive coverage of quality controlprocedures, followed by updated chapters on radiation safetypractices, radiation biology, and management of radiation accidentvictims.

Clear and concise, this new edition of Essentials of NuclearMedicine Physics and Instrumentation offers readers:
* Four new chapters
* Updated coverage of CT and hybrid scanning systems: PET/CT andSPECT/CT
* Fresh discussions of the latest technology based on solid statedetectors and new scanner designs optimized for dedicated cardiacimaging
* New coverage of PACs and DICOM systems
* Expanded coverage of image reconstruction and processingtechniques
* New material on methods of image display

Logically structured and clearly written, this is the book ofchoice for anyone entering the field of nuclear medicine, includingnuclear medicine residents and fellows, cardiac nuclear medicinefellows, and nuclear medicine technology students. It is also ahandy quick-reference guide for those already working in the fieldof nuclear physics.
