Nuclear Medicine in Urology and Nephrology, Second Edition describes and explains the applications of nuclear medicine to urology and nephrology and their role in clinical diagnosis.

This book consists of three parts. Part 1 presents a description of the nuclear medicine techniques and their interpretation. The application of nuclear medicine to specific clinical problems is covered in Part 2, while the basic principles and relevant theoretical and technical aspects that were not considered in the first part are dealt with in Part 3. The topics on “radiopharmaceuticals”, wherein lies the key to the successful choice, application and development of nuclear medicine techniques, and “radiation dosimetry” are also elaborated.

This publication is valuable to urologists and nephrologists, including those working in the fields of nuclear medicine and medical physics.
