This work has true international scope, being a unique European/American joint venture that focuses on the state of the art in both diagnostic and therapeutic radionuclide methodology. Pertinent clinical applications are emphasized rather than attempting to cover everything included in the several large comprehensive texts available in our field. This "practical" approach should make it an essential guide to nuclear medicine physicians, technologists, students and interested clinicians alike.

From the reviews:"Clinical Nuclear Medicine . focuses on the universal state of the art in both diagnostic and therapeutic radionuclide methodology. . This book is easily readable, with presentation of essential points and plentiful references, and the quality of the figures and tables is excellent. . is a useful guide to students, technologists, and practitioners in nuclear medicine and radiology, as well as to general physicians who request nuclear diagnosis or treatment. . will be a welcome contribution to the bookshelf of nuclear medicine or radiology clinics." (E. Edmund Kim, Journal of Nuclear Medicine, Vol. 49 (6), 2008)"Clinical Nuclear Medicine is a collaborative work that integrates the knowledge, excitement, and expertise of nuclear medicine professionals from around the world into a comprehensive and readable text for practitioners and trainees . . The book's compact size makes it a convenient reference to keep nearby. . This text is just the right size for clinical practitioners and trainees who are looking for a practical readable text on clinical nuclear medicine." (Karen A. Kurdziel, Radiology, Issue 1, 2009)"This is a comprehensive textbook that covers all relevant clinical applications in nuclear medicine. . Readers will note that this new multiauthored text has tried to move away from orthodox texts. . 'Clinical Nuclear Medicine' is . easy to handle and consult. . Figures and diagrams are clear and informative. . this is a very good textbook for nuclear medicine practitioners, but in particular it will attract nuclear medicine residents and fellows and entice them to the field."
