This second edition of Nuclear Hepatology: A Textbook of Hepatobiliary Diseases has been revised so as to encompass all of the most recent developments in the field. The result is a comprehensive, up-to-date book that will serve as a ready reference and a clinical and procedural guide. The authors, both of whom are nuclear medicine physicians, present nuclear hepatobiliary imaging techniques in the context of the many other possible diagnostic studies, thereby acquainting the reader with the role of these procedures. Throughout, care is taken to maintain a clear clinical focus and to emphasize the importance of integrating information on morphology and quantitative physiology as the basis for diagnosis. Each of the chapters is well illustrated and referenced. This book will prove invaluable not only to nuclear medicine physicians but also to practitioners of radiology, internal medicine, pediatrics, gastroenterology, hepatology, primary care, general surgery, and liver transplantation surgery.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:"This second-edition textbook on nuclear hepatology and hepatobiliary diseases is well written . . informative, useful, handy reference book filled with detailed information, excellent illustrations, and good nuclear hepatology and nuclear hepatic images. . I highly recommend the book to nuclear and radiology departmental and hospital libraries. It will also be a valuable addition to the nuclear physician's personal medical library, serving as an excellent reference resource for radiologists, nuclear physicians, residents, and medical students confronted with routine or unusual hepatic scan findings." (Usha A. Joseph, The Journal of Nuclear Medicine, Vol. 51 (10), October, 2010)"Authors are among the greatest international experts in the field and with a wide and intense clinical experience. . this book is full of useful and original information on nuclear hepatology, difficult to be found in other publications. Its main interest is in stimulating a wider diffusion of clinical indications for hepatobiliary scintigraphy in medical and surgical departments, including the emergency department, and centres for liver transplants. . we strongly recommend this book to all nuclear physicians, from the heads of the department to residents." (Luigi Mansi and Cinzia Landolfi, European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, Vol. 38, 2011)
