Developing farther from the traditional understanding of nuclear medicine, this book; The goal of this book, which is titled Nuclear Medicine Textbook: Methodology and Clinical Applications, is to help clinicians provide patients with the most beneficial outcomes possible by introducing novel concepts of hybrid imaging and discussing the close associations that exist between nuclear medicine and other clinical specialties. Diagnostic applications of nuclear medicine are no longer performed independently of other diagnostic imaging modalities; rather, they are now integrated into these procedures. This is especially relevant when discussing interventional radiology or surgical treatments that are guided by hybrid imaging. Consequently, experts in nuclear medicine nowadays are also experts in imaging using several modalities (in addition to their skills in the diagnostic and therapeutic uses of radionuclides). Because of this additional responsibility, the fundamental training for nuclear medicine practitioners needs to be updated. (PDF) Nuclear Medicine Textbook: Methodology and Clinical Applications was written with the intention of meeting these new educational needs and of preparing nuclear physicians and technologists for careers in this exciting field of medicine.
“In order to become a specialist in nuclear medicine, you are required to read this paper. The textbook is helpful for physicists, practitioners, technologists, nurses, radiochemists, physicians, and any other professionals who are interested in furthering their knowledge in this great and clinically relevant topic. This publication must succeed in every area where nuclear medicine is performed; there is no room for error.
