About this book


Nuclear Imaging of the Chest provides up-to-the minute information on the diagnostic nuclear imaging of chest disorders. The authors habe endeavored to integrate and consonsolidate the many different subspecialities in order to enable a holistic understanding of chest diseases from the nuclear medicine standpoint. Highlights of the book include the description of aerosol lung imaging in COPD and the updates on breast and lung cancer imaging. It is required reading not only for nuclear medicine practitioners and researchers but also for all interested radiologists, traumatologists, pulmonologists and cardiologists.
