Format: Hardcover
Concise, accurate information and good supporting bibliography. Plenty of illustrations and informative tables. Appendix on recommended protocols is very helpful. Radiation safety guidelines for pregnant females and breastfeeding mothers is essential.

This is a new edition of a classic book. Has new section on PET which is good but not adequate given how much PET is used nowadays. Supplement with PET books like PET/CT: A Case-based Approach by Conti (this may be too expensive for a resident) or PET and PET/CT: A Clinical Guide by Lin (less expensive).

Encompassing the spectrum of Nuclear Medicine in a concise textbook is an amazing feat. Each chapter is organized well by outlining the various indications, clinical scenarios and pearls for each chapter. Images are clear and annotations are easy to follow. Each chapter is organized by basic physics, instrumentation, artifacts, and quality control, as well as by organ system.

In the Appendix, there are 'Unknown Cases' for Self assessment, as well as common protocols, and other pertinent information that does not clutter the content of each chapter (as what has been done in the Requisites Series).

This is the best text for understanding nuclear medicine for a radiologist. I highly recommend this book.

Format: Hardcover
Concise. Easy to read. Excellent images. Three simple phrases for an excellent textbook. I was able to easily master and use this textbook on my first month of nuclear medicine and kept it "handy" for its tables and images. The pearls section at the end of each chapter were excellent for directing to truly key points. It is an excellent textbook for the _radiology_ resident and a good introductory textbook for the _nuclear medicine_ resident. A nuclear medicine resident would probably want to get a more detailed and comprehensive textbook. The chapter on PET was a nice addition to this book.

I am a Nuclear Medicine technology student and I highly recommend this book. It doesnt contain some of the most basic information but as long as you already have some basic knowledge of the nuclear physics and nuclear medicine itself, it is a great book. I has standarized protocols for various exams and gives which come real handy; also gives you the dosimetry for each exam which allows you to see which the critical organs for various exams are.
Lots of pictures and examples
I highly recommend this book for anyone who is going into the field of nuclear medicine

It has everything a Tech needs to know. It doesn't go too indepth, the pictures are pretty recent compared to other books, and good images of very particular things you need to know. Case studies in the back are great for quizing yourself, pearls give great highlights, and the tables in the back of great to know information with QC, NRC codes/regulations, etc are easy to understand and gets you the important info for taking your boards and almost any test you'll take in your Nuc Med Course.
