About this book


An excellent reference for both students and practitioners of nuclear medicine, this text presents a thorough discussion of normal and abnormal physiology of organ function through the use of scintigraphy. The chapters address all standard pediatric nuclear medicine studies as well as the less-common but important assessment of mandibular growth and symmetry and dacryoscintigraphy.
New to the second edition are chapters on SPECT; radiation absorbed doses; radiation risk; sedation in pediatric nuclear medicine; magnification; Legg-Calve-Perthes disease; tumor imaging; growth centers; and infection and inflammation. Plus, discussions of SPECT have been thoroughly integrated into the chapters on brain, heart, lung, bone, kidney, and oncological scintigraphy.
