[amazon template=image&asin=3319262343]

This book discusses the role of nuclear medicine in the diagnosis, staging, and treatment of patients with specific cancers. It presents the incidence, pathophysiologic and clinical aspects of the disease, the use of nuclear imaging in diagnosis, staging requirements, management of specific tumors, and surveillance after primary treatment of cancers. It addresses the various diagnostic/therapeutic options that are currently available or are most likely to become available in the near future according to a prioritized approach, thereby keeping to a minimum the number of diagnostic imaging procedures the patient is expected to undergo.

Topics include basic science, clinical applications, radionuclide therapy, radioguided surgery, heart disease in the cancer patient, and adverse effects of cancer therapy. Each clinical chapter discusses the radionuclide procedures within an integrated framework, thereby identifying the information required for effective treatment of specific tumors. The book concludes with a series of cases that define and expand the didactic material in the  clinical application chapters. Thoroughly updated and revised, the second edition incorporates advances in imaging and therapy and features the  current staging guidelines of the American Joint Committee on Cancer.

With contributions from a group of internationally distinguished practitioners, Nuclear Oncology: From Pathophysiology to Clinical Applications, Second Edition, is a valuable reference for nuclear medicine physicians, radiologists, medical and surgical oncologists, and other clinicians involved in the care and management of cancer patients.

The Practice of Internal Dosimetry in Nuclear Medicine (Series in Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering) 1st Edition

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=1482245817]

Written by one of the world’s leading experts in the field of nuclear medicine dosimetry, this text describes in detail the use of internal dose calculations in the practice of nuclear medicine. While radiation therapy with external sources of radiation always employs calculations of dose to optimize therapy for each patient, this is not routinely conducted in nuclear medicine therapy. As the trend towards an increasing role of dosimetry in therapy planning increases, this book reviews the available methods and technologies available to make this a more common practice.

The book begins by covering the mathematical fundamentals of internal dose calculations, and uses sample calculations to demonstrate key principles. The book then moves forward to describe anthropomorphic models, dosimetric models, and types and uses of diagnostic and therapeutic radiopharmaceuticals. The depth of coverage makes it useful reference and guide for researchers performing dose calculations and for physicians considering incorporating dose calculations into the treatment of their cancer patients.

PET: Molecular Imaging and Its Biological Applications

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=1441923322]

This book is written as both a text and a reference book. It contains numerous images from the biological sciences and clinical practice, tables, graphs, and fig­ ures, as well as exercises that are worked out to aid the reader in understanding principles or solving problems. In some cases, derivations are placed in appen­ dices so as not to break up the flow of the subject matter in the text. The book is intended for a broad audience interested in molecular imaging with positron emission tomography (PET). It is expected that the readers will range from undergraduate, graduate, and medical students to residents, physi­ cians, and scientists with backgrounds from various physical, biological, and medical specialty areas. Each chapter presents material in a straightforward man­ ner that is well illustrated and explained. Because of the diverse audience for the book, certain chapters or sections of chapters will be of more interest than oth­ ers to certain segments of the readership. Chapter 1 introduces the fundamental physics upon which PET imaging sys­ tems is based and discusses in detail the technologies and methods used to pro­ duce PET images. The chapter starts out by reviewing the physics of positron emission and annihilation and explains how positron range and photon non­ colinearity in coincidence detection place certain limits on spatial resolution.

Orthopedic Nuclear Medicine 2nd ed. 2017 Edition

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=3319561650]

This book, now in a revised and updated second edition, offers a comprehensive overview of the state of the art in orthopedic nuclear medicine, including the impressive recent advances in the field and the diagnosis of under-recognized conditions on the basis of their imaging patterns. The opening chapters acquaint the reader briefly with anatomic, physiologic, pathologic, and technical concepts crucial to a sound understanding of orthopedic nuclear medicine and its utilization in clinical practice. The imaging diagnosis of skeletal infections, trauma, vascular disorders, metabolic and neoplastic bone diseases, soft tissue calcifications, and joint disorders is then explained in detail. Two entirely new chapters, on bone marrow imaging and hybrid imaging of bone diseases, have been added to this edition.  A separate chapter is devoted to the use of radionuclides for the treatment of bone and joint disorders. The book is richly illustrated and amply documents the effectiveness of nuclear medicine in diagnosing bone disease. It will prove invaluable to all with an interest in diagnostic and therapeutic orthopedics, including orthopedists, radiologists, rheumatologists, pediatricians, podiatrists, other clinicians, and all nuclear and molecular imaging professionals.

“..it is one of the best nuclear medicine textbooks and the most complete presentation of the role of nuclear medicine in orthopedics …This book addresses a difficult topic in nuclear imaging that is often insufficiently covered ba many general textbooks in the field. ..a must have book for all professionals dealing with orthopedic problems….(Michael J. Blend, Radiology, Vol. 239, April 2006).

“This is a fine book that encompasses every aspect of bone physiopathology related to nuclear medicine in orthopaedic surgery. Nicely illustrated and well presented, this book offers comfortable and interesting reading and brings an in-depth insight on the mechanisms of action, the pathology and the pharmacology of the imaging molecules. … This volume should be available to every orthopaedic surgeon and trainee.” (C. Delloye, Acta Orthopaedica Belgica, Vol. 70(6), 2004)

“Despite the emergence of new imaging methods, nuclear medicine and in particular, osseous scintigraphy, preserves a very particular place in osteoarticular exploration. A.H. Elgazzar performs an update of the various applications in this field. … the author has the requisite merit to produce a synthetic work on the entire gamut of nuclear medicine applications in osteoarticular pathology, intended for a large audience from the point of view of specialists as well as those with some experience.” (L. Balabaud, European Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery & Traumatology, Vol. 16, 2006)
