Review

NMT Program Manager , Larry Gibson -- "It is an awesome book which I have highly recommend to my students, and plan to make a required text next Fall Term. I appreciate your dedication and contribution to the field of Nuclear Medicine." Program Director and Chief Instructor, Nuclear Medicine Program, Methodist University Hospital Schools of Radiologic and Imaging Sciences, Nancy Clifton, RT, CNMT -- "As you can imagine I get a fair amount of calls from alumni, peers, etc. wanting to know what is the 'latest and greatest' book they should have in their departments. Hands down I will be recommending your Second Edition as the one they 'ought to buy', as I believe it is a balanced text and can serve as an excellent departmental guide - especially for those procedures not performed on a routine basis. Plus, as we all are faced with increasing 'multi-cultural' language issues, the book continues to be a vital resource as we all work to improve our 'patient teaching'." Retired Professor of Nuclear Medicine , Max H. Lombardi -- "A close and thorough examination of the book indicates that it is an excellent source of detailed and up-to-date information on Nuclear Medicine procedures as they are applied today in the U.S. The book is definitely a good reference for practicing physicians, NM technologists, as well as teachers and students in NMT programs across the country. I appreciate the book's organization in alphabetical order rather than in the classic organ systems way. The alphabetical approach makes it easier to find any procedure instantly. In conclusion, the book is a valuable contribution to the field of Nuclear Medicine."

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Informative Book September 28, 2009

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is like our Nuclear Medicine Bible at our nuclear pharmacy. Our old outdated version from 2000 was falling apart and was quite outdated. This new version is great!
