About this book


The newly updated and expanded Atlas of Nuclear Cardiology, Fourth Edition provides physicians and trainees with the most up-to-date information in a rapidly changing field.  In addition to beautifully rendered color illustrations, the atlas emphasizes key points with a multitude of diagnostic algorithms and schematic diagrams integrated with nuclear cardiology procedures.  Relevant for the clinical practice of nuclear cardiology, each chapter focuses on material of practical merit.  The book gives full coverage to areas of cardiac physiology, pathology, and metabolism.  The utility of noninvasive cardiovascular nuclear imaging techniques for diagnosis, screening and evaluation is discussed in the context of various clinical scenarios, including heart failure, acute coronary syndrome, and atherosclerosis. Written by an expert group of researchers and clinicians, the atlas emphasizes today’s most current information, providing a invaluable resource and meeting the requirements for those who will be using the book as a reference source for certifying or re-certifying in cardiology, nuclear cardiology, nuclear medicine or radiology.
