This latest edition of NUCLEAR CARDIOLOGY provides up-to-the-minute information on current and future uses of radionuclides in imaging diagnosis of the heart. Thoroughly revised and updated, it contains practical information on radiopharmaceuticals, tracer kinetics, instrumentation, ventricular function, perfusion, acute ischemic syndrome, viability, and metabolic images, as well as a discussion of the role of nuclear cardiology in a changing health care system. Practitioners in nuclear medicine, radiology, and cardiology will benefit from having current information on a wide range of topics in one focused reference. Provides highly detailed and comprehensive information in one convenient resource Includes more than 600 images and illustrations to aid comprehension Incorporates the knowledge of internationally recognized authors who are experts in the field Discusses a broad spectrum of nuclear cardiology applications to help you gain a better perspective on contemporary cardiac nuclear medicine
This work has true international scope, being a unique European/American joint venture that focuses on the state of the art in both diagnostic and therapeutic radionuclide methodology. Pertinent clinical applications are emphasized rather than attempting to cover everything included in the several large comprehensive texts available in our field. This "practical" approach should make it an essential guide to nuclear medicine physicians, technologists, students and interested clinicians alike.
In Atlas of Nuclear Cardiology, Doctors Dilsizian and Narula have worked together with over a dozen leading authorities to capture the most up-to-date and pertinent information in the field of nuclear cardiology. This atlas is a modern and complete visual library of up-to-date information on the most current cardiovascular nuclear procedures in the clinical practice of cardiology. Together with detailed legends and extensive reference listings, the over 600 illustrations deliver comprehensive information. Diagnostic algorithms and schematic diagrams integrated with nuclear cardiology procedures are generously interspersed with color images to emphasize key concepts in cardiovascular physiology and metabolism. This vital reference provides a detailed and accurate insight into the noninvasive evaluation and quantification of myocardial perfusion, function, and metabolism.

Nuclear cardiology is critical for the medical evaluation of patients with heart disease. Clinical Nuclear Cardiology: Practical Applications and Future Directions is the second volume of this series. The volume provides information about the clinical application of imaging techniques (such as SPECT and PET) in clinical practice with the goal of guiding health care professionals to make informed decisions for identifying cardiac risk in patients with heart disease. The information in the book covers four broad aspects of nuclear cardiology: - Myocardial Perfusion Scintigraphy - Fatty Acid Imaging - Neurotransmission imaging - Molecular Imaging and Preventive Medicine Readers will be equipped with information necessary for understanding the diagnosis and management of a variety of cardiomyopathies through various imaging technologies. This volume is a comprehensive reference for cardiologists and medical imaging technicians involved in clinical settings as well as medical students who require an understanding of the cardiovascular aspects of nuclear medicine.
Nuclear cardiac imaging refers to cardiac radiological diagnostic techniques performed with the aid of radiopharmaceuticals, which are perfused into the myocardium as markers. These imaging studies provide a wide range of information about the heart, including the contractility of the heart, the amount of blood supply to the heart and whether parts of the heart muscle are alive or dead. This is essential information for cardiologists, and nuclear imaging has become an increasingly important part of the cardiologist's armamentarium. Iskandrian's text has become a leading book in the field and the fourth edition will continue the tradition. The text is completely updated to reflect the many advances in the field, and, as a new feature, each chapter concludes with a Q&A session on important and difficult clinical issues.
Builds on the success of Nuclear Cardiology: Practical Applications (by the same author team) Audience: Cardiologists, Nuclear Cardiology Technicians, Nuclear Medicine Technologists, and those preparing for the Cardiology Board Includes a four-color photo insert Concise, to-the-point presentation is perfect for busy clinicians
Written specifically for those candidates about to sit for the FRCR part II examination, the format will also be of use to other trainee radiologists who are not specialists in this field. It contains a number of multiple choice questions covering all aspects of nuclear medicine with particular emphasis on the more common techniques, ie bone, renal and lung scanning. Extensive use is made of review articles, and important articles in the major nuclear medicine journals and references are provided.
The purpose of this book is to provide the outline for the "nuts and bolts" establishment and operation of a nuclear cardiology laboratory. In so doing, the authors have attempted to deal with the relevant issues that a laboratory director must address in either setting up the laboratory or maintaining its competitive edge and clinical competence over time. The authors primarily attempted to identify issues related to outpatient imaging facilities. However, where appropriate issues related to inpatients in hospital-based laboratories are also discussed.

Readable, practical and concise, Nuclear Cardiology is a self-contained guide to this cardiac imaging subspecialty. Including both technical and clinical aspects, it provides a foundation of essential knowledge common to practitioners from any background. This title covers radiation physics, biology and protection, and addresses all areas of imaging including the design and operation of the gamma camera (including solid-state cameras), single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) acquisition and processing, and image interpretation and writing of reports. Stress testing and radiopharmaceuticals are explained in detail, as is the evidence-base underpinning myocardial perfusion scintigraphy. Newer radionuclide imaging techniques are well-covered (e.g. phosphate scintigraphy in cardiac amyloidosis), as is the expanding field of cardiac positron emission tomography (PET). Fully updated with coverage of new indications for gamma camera imaging, increased focus on attenuation correction and SPECT-CT and detail on the design use and clinical implications of solid-state gamma cameras throughout, this second edition of the essential text for nuclear cardiology trainees and practitioners is fully illustrated with colour plates to aid clinical practice. Presented in the bestselling Oxford Specialist Handbook format, Nuclear Cardiology provides core knowledge for those training in the subspecialty, whether at a basic or advanced level or from a medical or technical background, and is a key resource for those seeking to accredit in the subspecialty.
