MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews of the second edition:

"This book, revised to reflect the growth in PET and PET/CT imaging, presents concepts at a basic level designed to help nuclear medicine professionals in their training and preparation for board certification. ... It is meant as a preparatory guide for physicians ... . The author is a world expert on radiopharmacy. ... This second edition has been extensively revised to update information on detectors, scanners, and data collection. ... The book is relatively inexpensive and covers the subject at the basic level very well." (Dean W. Broga, Doody's Review Service, November, 2010)
