This book provides the reader with a comprehensive understanding of both the basic principles and the clinical applications of nuclear oncology imaging techniques. The authors have assembled a distinguished group of leaders in the field who provide valuable insight on the subject. The book also includes major chapters on the cancer patient and the pathophysiology of abnormal tissue, the evaluation of co-existing disease, and the diagnosis and therapy of specific tumors using functional imaging studies. Each chapter is heavily illustrated to assist the reader in understanding the clinical role of nuclear oncology in cancer disease therapy and management.

Editorial 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)
