Book Preface

Seven years have elapsed since publication of our fourth edition, and it has been 22 years since our first edition. In this fifth edition, we have made substantial revisions while trying to keep to essentials and to keep the book affordable. We have updated the chapters to include newer aspects of instrumentation and radiopharmaceuticals and have removed outdated material. Tables on dosimetry have been moved from the chapters and placed in the appendix on examination protocols and techniques.

We have added a dedicated PET chapter. Although the rest of the book is predominantly organized by organ system, we felt that many experienced readers would be interested in PET only and that appropriate cross-referencing in other chapters would suffice. The advent of PET/CT and other forms of fusion imaging has also required the addition of color images.

At the end of the text, we have included sets of unknown cases that span the gamut of nuclear medicine. Review of the sets will allow the readers to assess their knowledge in a common testing format. This has added almost 70 pages to the text but we hope our readers find it worthwhile.
