Format: Hardcover
This textbook is excellent for introducing people to the field of nuclear medicine. The book is divided in two parts: basic principles, chapters 1-4, and clinical scintigraphy, chapters 5-15, including one chapter entitled Pearls, pitfalls and FAQ. The book keeps the pace with the innovations occurred over the last five years since the first edition was published. The fundamental concepts of physics, nuclear pharmacy and instrumentation, are so pleasant and clear to read that easily will capture the attention of the busiest clinician. Residents are the main target of this book, but all those who teach nuclear medicine will find it useful for preparing their lectures as the sharpness is a main feature of the book. The book shows that the authors know perfectly what they write about, as they have taken the time to write what needs to be written concisely: for sure the authors enjoy their profession and care for patients by providing students with an excellent tool.

This is a great textbook for resident level study in nuclear medicine, and the first book I'd use for an introduction. It's concise, with excellent diagrams and pictures of scintograms, and it presents the physics and chemistry behind nuclear med, as well as clinical correlations and the actual technology itself (gamma cameras, collimator's, etc.). Although there are definitely more detailed (and much, much, longer and more expensive) texts out there, this is where to begin a study of nukes, and it can easily be encompassed within the scope of a one month rotation.

This is a new edition. Compared to Mettler this probably has a greater range of coverage. Both books are very good. 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).

I've never read a medicine book like that before... Very clever topics, with excellent diagrams... Must-have details with routine protocols... It's unbeliavable but I think this is the only medicine book which contains 5-10 letter-faults per paper too. You have to be carefull for microcurie-milicurie symboles and right-left confusions... New edition must contain more datas about new radiopharmasotics and PET...Cancer and infection subjects are very limited... But the book must be kept in 300-350 paper again to be so nice and usefull... Thank you for this most usefull textbook of nuclear medicine...

It's not a stellar member of the essentials series.

I only read the first three or four chapters. There are many typographical errors and factual inconsistencies in the material that I read. I thought that by the third edition things like this would be ironed out. Hopefully by the 4th ed they'll get fixed.

Overall, this is the best book of its type, but I was hoping for a more balanced look at the practice of nuclear medicine. The authors present their methods, based on their research, but do not give enough consideration to the work done by other researchers, specifically in the area of hepatobiliary scintigraphy. Still, this I like this book better than Metzger's and Palmer's.
