Reviews

From the reviews: This is one of only a few books dedicated to this emerging field. ... The intended audience is practitioners in nuclear medicine, especially those with a significant interest in oncology, and how nuclear medicine procedures, imaging, and therapy can be integrated into patient management. ... This is an outstanding and thorough review of the applications of nuclear medicine to the diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment of patients with cancer. ... It will be a valuable resource for practitioners in the field of nuclear medicine. (Bennett S. Greenspan, Doody's Book Reviews, April, 2013)


From the reviews: This well-written treatise on nuclear oncology will help nuclear physicians and radiologists who practice nuclear oncology to gain an in-depth understanding of how far this discipline has evolved. The book will also enable scientists who are involved in nuclear oncology research or clinical research to grasp the breadth of the discipline. (Franklin C.
