Editorial Reviews

Review

"This new edition of 'Physics in Nuclear Medicine' is organized well and written clearly. It accomplishes the authors' goal of providing a single volume that serves as both a textbook for radiology residents, scientists, and technologists, and a reference for physicians and scientists in related fields. Overall, the authors have done an excellent job of elucidating the expanding and complex role of physics principles in nuclear medicine." Radiology, March 2005, p. 878

"Sorenson and Phelps" is now "Cherry, Sorenson and Phelps." It is still the standard text for nuclear medicine physics, covering the topics well for the radiology resident, nuclear medicine resident or fellow, or a beginning medical physicist. While clearly (in my opinion) the best text in its field, I would suggest that the authors give future consideration for a companion CD ROM (as in many new texts) that helps the reader understand some of the more complex topics, and that they give more treatment to quantiative PET scanning (including a "cookbook" on Patlak analysis using either arterial sampling or modified for venous sampling with left ventricular or aortic region of interest measurement with PET/CT). Sadly, little PET/CT information is available, perhaps the "hottest" topic in nuclear medicine.
All in all, though, it is still the standard text in the field. I am glad to see (and own) the latest edition, and highly recommend it for purchase.

This is one of those books that should be in the
library of every medical and health physicist, radiologist, residents and students. A little dated by now (published in 1986), but it still provides excellent coverage of the basic physics of nuclear medicine which haven't really changed.
Topics covered include radiation, radiation detectors and instrumentation, radionuclide production, dosimetry, Anger cameras and imaging systems, tracer kinetics and radiation safety.

Simon Cherry has recently updated this venerated classic textbook originally written by Michael Phelps and Jim Sorenson. The revised and expanded book makes a timely contribution to modern imaging. I just used this book as a supplement to a graduate course at San Diego State University on "Physics of Imaging". It is clear, thorough and very well written. Steven Goetsch, Ph.D.

The book is written as an overview of all aspects of nuclear medicine, and is successfully comprehensive in scope. It is more of a 'theory' book in that it does not offer, by proportion, much clinically relevant information. The theory happens to be limited in its derivations and is presented semi-qualitatively (equations are offered, but usually too general for those with research interests), though I'm sure it would have to be much thicker to incorporate said information.

Ultimately, it is a very accessible introduction to the science and would be useful in preparation for Nuc Med or Radiology (and similar) board exams, if augmented with more quantitatively detailed texts.

Sorenson and Phelps have compiled all of the relative and essential physics of nuclear medicine in such a way that is easy to understand. This text also contained graphs that illustrated points and made them much clearer. The pictures of hardware, although somewhat outdated, also were helpful in the learning process. This is an excellent text for any course of study related to nuclear medicine.
