Reviews

"It use part of a series that aims to provide radiologists in training with an overview of the subject that could be reasonably assimilated in a short space of time when coming new to a subject, in this case nuclear medicine. It has clearly  become more comprehensive over the years as the speciality has increased in scope, and with the increasing need for recertification, it is how aimed at providing concise information for established radiologists...There are many good features to this book. The first part describing the basic principles of nuclear medicine is a particularly valuable resource to somebody coming to the subject for the first time...The answer to most questions that one would meet in day-to-day practice can be found in this book. I both enjoyed it and think it does what it says on the packet."
