About this book


Edited by Drs. João V. Vitola and Dominique Delbeke, two highly respected experts, this case-based text advances the knowledge and skills of experienced nuclear medicine physicians, cardiologists, and radiologists while also preparing residents for the cutting-edge field of nuclear cardiology. Internationally recognized contributors offer an indispensable presentation of key techniques and the latest technology. Diagnostic tools, physics principles, instrumentation, radiopharmaceuticals, and protocols central to the field are covered. A comprehensive review of the applications of myocardial perfusion imaging includes applications in special populations and in emergency departments. Risk assessment, pitfalls, and artifacts are also addressed. Additional chapters examine correlative imaging and detail the value of cardiac MRI, multislice computed tomography, stress echocardiography, coronary angiography, intravascular ultrasound, and PET and PET/CT. Case presentations and a wealth of illustrations reinforce guidelines on diagnosis and image interpretation, highlighting situations that readers are likely to encounter in everyday practice.
