Nuclear medicine is an important element of daily practice for the endocrinologist, both for diagnosis and for treatment. The continuous rapid development of nuclear medicine procedures has created the need for a concise, up-to-date practical guide that presents the essential information required by the endocrinologist. This book is designed to ensure ease of use in clinical practice and provides the most relevant information on nuclear medicine as applied to endocrine pathology. It is divided into three sections covering general aspects of nuclear medicine, the role of nuclear endocrinology in diagnosis, and the role of nuclear endocrinology in therapy. The endocrine glands are covered by organ and by pathology. Pertinent background information is provided, choice of radiopharmaceutical is explained, and the role of different image acquisition techniques is discussed. In addition, informative clinical cases are presented with the aid of high-quality images.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This didactic, easy-to-use book is designed to educate clinical endocrinologists who use nuclear testing and treatment in their practices. . The book is most useful for clinical endocrinologists, but endocrine surgeons and oncologists with an interest in thyroid cancer also may find it helpful. . The book is filled with color pictures and diagrams . . This is an excellent and useful guide to nuclear endocrinology - and it is the only book I have come across that focuses on teaching endocrinologists about nuclear endocrinology." (Rebecca L. Brown, Doody's Review Service, October, 2012)
