Drs. Vitola and Delbeke assembled a group of standout contributors in order to create a resource that advances the knowledge and skills of experienced nuclear cardiologists and radiologists while also preparing residents for the cutting-edge field of nuclear cardiology. Diagnostic tools, physics and instrumentation, and radiopharmaceuticals and protocols central to the field are examined. The comprehensive text covers key applications of myocardial perfusion imaging, including applications in special populations and in emergency departments. Risk assessment, pitfalls, and artefacts are addressed. Additional chapters detail the value of cardiac MRI, multislice computed tomography, stress echocardiography, and PET and PET/CT to nuclear cardiology. Practical case presentations and a wealth of illustrations reinforce instruction on diagnostic guidelines and methods.

"In this book, Drs. Vitola (Brazil) and Delbeke (USA) have gathered a large panel of experts who collaborated in reviewing the essential features of nuclear cardiology. ... this medium sized book achieves the goal of combining both informative introductory text and multiple case presentations. ... Moreover, these cases presentations are widely completed by high quality illustrations. ... This is a well-structured educational book that could be highly recommended to all cardiologists and nuclear medicine physicians interested in the field of nuclear cardiology." (A. Manrique, Surgical and Radiologic Anatomy, Vol. 27 (6), 2005)
