From the Back Cover
The British Nuclear Medicine Society celebrates its 50th Anniversary with this booklet, which reflects the research of many of the pioneers in the use of radionuclides for the diagnosis and therapy of human disease. Since 1949 there have been remarkable advances in radionuclide techniques and imaging equipment: from the first devices “home-made” in the many physics departments throughout the UK, to the sophisticated multimodality imagers now in everyday use in Nuclear Medicine. The BNMS has been instrumental in promoting the use of radionuclide techniques in the investigation of pathology by supporting and providing education, research and guidelines on the optimum use of radiation to help patients. The future of Nuclear Medicine is bright, thanks to improved imaging resolution, new radiopharmaceuticals, and new diagnostic and therapeutic techniques and procedures.--This text refers to the paperback edition.
About the Author
I graduated from Queens University Belfast with a BSc in Physiology and my medical degree. As a houseman I worked in the Royal Victoria Hospital for Dr Frank Pantridge who invented the defibrillator. I was fascinated by his catheter laboratory and decided to study physiology in radiology. I moved to Guys Hospital London to study for an MSc in Radiation Physics and Biology together with a Diploma in Medical Radiological Diagnosis (DMRD). My next position was an S.H.O in the Radiology Department of the Hammersmith Hospital. During a locum in the newly opened Royal Marsden Hospital in Sutton I was offered a research position in the Institute of Cancer Research in the Isotope Unit. Eventually I became a Consultant in Nuclear Medicine in charge of the Nuclear Medicine and Ultrasound Department for over 40 years. With Nuclear Medicine and the Medical Physics departments at each end of the same corridor I was fortunate to be able to cooperate in many projects involving innovations in nuclear medicine and ultrasound equipment and radiopharmacy. Now retired I still enjoy publishing and presenting at National and International meetings. I am a Professor Emeritus at the Institute of Cancer Research and an Honorary Consultant at the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton, U.K. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
