Diagnostic Nuclear Medicine

      The second edition of this two-volume, multiauthored text, the latest addition to Golden's Diagnostic Radiology series, was designed as a general reference source for “physicians with a significant commitment to nuclear medicine.” In the 12 years since the publication of the first edition, the field of nuclear medicine has matured, and this text, more than twice the size of its predecessor, reflects this coming of age. Many of the previously described procedures have been radically altered, new procedures have been established, and some procedures discussed in the first edition are now obsolete and have been omitted. The rapid changes in nuclear medicine, together with the proliferation of other diagnostic imaging modalities, make it essential for the nuclear medicine physician to keep abreast of the continuously emerging new technologies and applications in order to gain a proper perspective of these new techniques and their roles in patient care. Thus, in a departure from similar textbooks, the editors of this text expended considerable effort to correlate the various imaging modalities in an attempt to define the role of nuclear medicine within the wide spectrum of current diagnostic imaging technology. In view of the varying availability of equipment and expertise at different institutions, the editors have done a remarkable job in trying to establish a coherent philosophy in this regard.
