Editorial Reviews

From the reviews of the third edition:"This edition includes new questions to address the latest changes in the board examinations and the FDA approved radiopharmaceuticals. Students, both medically qualified and those studying for the technologists' examination, will find the book excellent for revision. At less than GBP 20, it should be on the bookshelf of every imaging department."RAD Magazine, January, 2006"This is an update of a review for those wishing to take the nuclear medicine technology boards. . Students in nuclear medicine technology are the intended audience. . Answers are provided for the questions along with explanations. . This one is very well written and a great tool for those wanting to take the NMTCB and/or the ARRT (N) exams." (Ann Voslar, Doody's Review Services, January, 2009)
