4.0 out of 5 stars easy to understand as a beginner September 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is easy to understand as a beginner. It doesn't have enough technical information and images for my class. So, we use a combination of 2 text books. All my fellow students and I read this book first because it explains nuclear medicine imaging at a basic level.

Good text though was hoping for more PET/CT and less nuclear. Inclusion of MRI is beneficial to students and staff

I would give this text an A++!!! Compared to the older version of the same text, in my opinion, the actual text found throughout this newer edition is much more easier to read and easier on the eyes.
