A practical and comprehensive reference for nuclear medicine.

"The current edition has been updated to include hybrid imaging using SPECT/CT and PET/CT. The text covers a full range of nuclear medicine related subject; including instrumentation, radiopharmaceuticals, clinical applications and safety. The updating has brought the text to cutting edge regarding tthe range of clinical proceduresand also includes aspects of radiotherapy in nuclear medicine...the text is lavishly illustrated with a large number of clinical images showing a range of pathologies. Also included are very useful summary tables and 'Pearls and Pitfalls' sections that provide practical advice for different imaging techniques...Overall this is an excellent book with a wide range of coverage that would be of use to clinicians and radiographers/ technologists working in nuclear medicine. I t would be suitable as a reference both for masters level and for final year undergraduates. It would also be of use for anyone studying nuclear medicine at registar level."

"The? cases presented were very interesting an d illustrations were of the highest quality. I appreciated the 'pearls and pitfalls' section at the end of each chapter, which were clearly presented and formed good summaries of the key points of each chapter... So, on the final could I invest ?83.99, a definite and resounding yes, if I wanted an excellent written book which will provide a clear and broad review of the essentials of clinical nuclear medicine..."

"This is a high-quality introductory book in nuclear medicine that is comprehensive enough to serve as a reference for practitioners, without being too long or too detailed. This book includes revisions that reflect the significant advances in the field in the last six years."- Bennett Greenspan, MD, MS (Medical College of Georgia) 5 star Doody Rating!

Fred A. Mettler, MD, an Elsevier Author, practices diagnostic radiology and nuclear medicine in Albuquerque, where he is Chief of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine at New Mexico Veterans Health Care System. He is currently the U.S. Representative to the United Nations for Radiation Effects.

A new JNM article sheds light on how nuclear medicine brain imaging can help evaluate the biological changes that cause chemotherapy-related cognitive impairment (CRCI), commonly known as chemo-brain.

The new online ASNC/SNMMI 80 Hour Authorized User Training Course is designed to provide nuclear medicine physicians with the knowledge needed to establish a culture of safety and quality in their practice. Learn More

According to the new Directive, a high level of competence and a clear definition of responsibilities and tasks among all professionals involved in medical exposure are fundamental to ensure adequate protection of patients undergoing medical radiodiagnostic and radiotherapeutic procedures. This applies to medical doctors, dentists and other health professionals entitled to take clinical responsibility for individual medical exposures, to medical physics experts and to other professionals carrying out practical aspects of medical radiological procedures, such as radiographers and technicians in radiodiagnostic medicine, nuclear medicine and radiotherapy.

A specialist in nuclear medicine uses molecular tracers (usually labeled with radioactive atoms) for diagnosis and therapy. These labeled tracers are most often used to produce images that provide information about organ function, as well as cellular function on a molecular level (molecular imaging).

Essentials of Nuclear Medicine Physics, Instrumentation, and Radiation Biology provides a concise, highly illustrated introduction to fundamental nuclear medicine-related physics and engineering concepts. Gradually progressing from basic principles to more advanced topics, this book offers clear guidance on basic physics related to nuclear medicine, gamma camera imaging and image reconstruction, x-ray computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, radiopharmaceutic therapy, radiation dosimetry and safety, quality control, information technology, and more. Throughout the text, a wealth of examples illustrate the practice of nuclear medicine in the real world.

This new fourth edition features fully revised content throughout, including brand-new chapters on basic MRI physics and instrumentation as well as radiopharmaceutical therapy. There are expanded discussions of current nuclear medicine technologies including positron emission tomography (PET) and single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), as well as up-to-date coverage of SPECT-CT, PET-CT hybrid scanning systems with an introduction to PET-MRI hybrid systems. Essential reading for anyone entering the field of nuclear medicine, this book:

Essentials of Nuclear Medicine Physics, Instrumentation, and Radiation Biology is a must-have for all residents, fellows, trainees, and students in nuclear medicine, and a valuable quick-reference for radiologists and nuclear medicine physicians and technologists.

Expertise in diagnosis and treatment: We lead the nation in state-of-the-art treatments using nuclear medicine technology. Our highly skilled specialists work as a team to evaluate how parts of the body are working and provide a precise diagnosis.

Convenient care: We perform nuclear medicine procedures at several locations, including inpatient and outpatient clinics in Westwood, Santa Monica, Thousand Oaks and Santa Clarita. Our compassionate team makes it as easy as possible for you to get the care you need.

Groundbreaking therapies: Nuclear medicine experts work with a coordinated team of specialists to treat neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). These tumors, which start in hormone-producing cells, can develop anywhere in the body. Ours was one of the first medical centers in the world to treat patients with Lutathera, a targeted nuclear medicine therapy that destroys NET cells while sparing healthy tissues.

Precise prostate cancer diagnosis: UCLA Health nuclear medicine experts use an imaging technique called prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) PET scan to diagnose prostate cancer with unparalleled accuracy. The results of these scans enable us to plan more effective treatments. As one of only a handful of medical centers in the world offering this sophisticated imaging study, we lead the nation in prostate care.

Nuclear medicine is a safe and effective type of imaging procedure. It uses very small amounts of radioactive materials (tracers) to help doctors diagnose and manage a variety of diseases. During a nuclear medicine procedure, your doctor uses a large scanner to take detailed pictures of your body.

Reactions to these tracers are rare, but if you have concerns or any allergies, talk to your doctor. Nuclear medicine procedures are safe. The total amount of radiation you receive from a nuclear medicine exam is comparable to the amount you receive during an X-ray.

Manage disease and plan treatments: We use the results of nuclear medicine scans to gather information about certain tumors, including prostate tumors. Using this information, we can develop the most appropriate treatment plan while lowering the risk of future disease.

Provide effective therapies: Nuclear medicine allows us to deliver radiation therapy directly to neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). NETs develop in the hormone-producing cells of the neuroendocrine system. Using precise nuclear medicine treatments, we target these tumors and destroy them while reducing radiation to healthy tissues.

Our team includes recognized leaders in nuclear medicine techniques that diagnose, manage and treat disease. We work with specialists in other departments to ensure coordinated care for children and adults.

The RAIS Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) concentration in Diagnostic Medical Sonography is designed for individuals who have completed diagnostic medical sonography educational programs and want to advance their knowledge and skills within this specialty. The curriculum is designed to teach students the essentials of leadership, an overview of the business and administrative functions in healthcare, along with advanced ultrasound imaging expertise. Graduates in this concentration will be qualified as managers and administrators and acquire the clinical expertise to obtain additional credentials within Ultrasound. 041b061a72
