Description

Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging offers complete coverage of this exciting and key area of biomedicine, seamlessly fusing the science behind nuclear medicine with the clinical aspects of diagnostic imaging. Beginning with sections on the physics related to nuclear medicine, radiation biology/safety, and instrumentation/quality control, it then covers radiochemistry and the development of new radionuclide therapy/tracers, and basic techniques such as positron emission tomography (PET) and single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT). The focus then shifts to the clinical aspects, with sections on clinical/preclinical nuclear imaging (structured via organ system such as gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, pulmonary, etc.), as well as other in vivo molecular imaging techniques such as optical imaging, digital image analysis (radiomics), as well as the increasing use of artificial intelligence (AI) in diagnostics. No other publication provides such a complete overview of the field, with most choosing to focus either on physics or imaging. In most cases, preclinical/experimental imaging is treated separately from clinical imaging. Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging brings it all together into a complete, 4-volume, foundational resource for researchers and medical professionals specializing in this exciting area.
