Building on the conventional concept of nuclear medicine, this textbook, Nuclear Medicine Textbook: Methodology and Clinical Applications presents innovative concepts of hybrid imaging and discusses the close associations between nuclear medicine and other clinical specialties, in order to attain the best possible outcomes for patients. Today the diagnostic applications of nuclear medicine are no more stand-alone procedures, separate from other diagnostic imaging modalities. This is particularly true for hybrid imaging guided interventional radiology or surgical procedures. Accordingly, today’s nuclear medicine specialists are actually experts in multimodality imaging (in addition to their skills in the diagnostic and therapeutic uses of radionuclides). This new role needs a new core curriculum for training nuclear medicine specialists. Nuclear Medicine Textbook: Methodology and Clinical Applications, (PDF) is designed to meet these new educational needs, and to train nuclear physicians and technologists for careers in this exciting specialty.

“This publication is ‘compulsory’ for training nuclear medicine specialists. The textbook is also useful for physicists, practitioners, technologists, nurses, radiochemists, clinicians, and all the other professionals interested to adjourn in this excellent and clinically relevant specialty. This publication absolutely must not fail in all the departments in which nuclear medicine is practiced.” — Luigi Mansi, European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, Vol. 47, 2020
