Nuclear Medicine Textbook

Methodology and Clinical Applications. 2 Volume-set

Duccio Volterrani, Paola Anna Erba
e altri

editore: Springer International Publishing AG

pagine: 1331

This textbook seeks to expand the old concept of Nuclear Medicine so as to adapt it to the new scenarios opened especially by the emergence of hybrid imaging, and more generally by the close interaction with other clinical specialties, and achieve the best possible benefits for patients. In fact, today the diagnostic applications of nuclear medicine cannot be considered as stand-alone procedures, separate from other modalities of diagnostic imaging. This is especially true for those radiologic imaging procedures that can be synergistically combined with nuclear medicine imaging, as is now routinely done with hybrid PET/CT and SPECT/CT (while the use of PET/MR is also growing). Thus, today's Nuclear Medicine specialists are expected to be specialists in multimodality imaging (in addition to expertise in therapy with radionuclides, which is crucial to the autonomy of the discipline). This requirement (which forms the basis of developing a new core curriculum for Nuclear Medicine specialists) forms the guiding concept throughout this new textbook, both in terms of its general structure and in each chapter, especially those devoted to the different clinical applications. Residents in Nuclear Medicine and Diagnostic Imaging and Medical School students as well as School for Nuclear Medicine Technologists will find this textbook an invaluable tool.

Nuclear Medicine

Practical Physics, Artifacts, and Pitfalls

Daniel A. Pryma

editore: Oxford University Press Inc

pagine: 208

In contrast to most anatomic radiographic imaging techniques, nuclear medicine permits real time, non-invasive imaging of human physiology and pathophysiology and also allows for exquisite targeting of disease with therapeutic radiology. To open this window to the processes of human disease, one must first understand the physical processes behind radioactive decay and emission, as well the principles of radiation detection. Practical Nuclear Medicine Physics provides residents and practitioners in nuclear medicine and radiology a readable explanation of the physics concepts underpinning nuclear imaging and how they impact the utilization and interpretation of those images. Following a brief introductory section, the book provides numerous case examples, illustrating various imaging artifacts and pitfalls that can be recognized and remedied with a solid understanding of the physics behind the procedure. Understanding and applying the physics behind nuclear medicine is essential to maximizing not only diagnostic and therapeutic accuracy for providing optimal patient care, but "Practical Physics" is a required portion of radiology residency education and a designated area of the board exams.

editore: Lippincott Williams and Wilkins

pagine: 736

Nuclear Oncology a contemporary narrative of the role of nuclear medicine in oncology with an emphasis on SPECT/CT and PET/CT with additional comments when appropriate on the potential application of PET/MR and to a lesser degree, targeted radionuclide therapy. This book focuses on the use of radionuclides in the diagnosis and treatment of malignant diseases. It describes relevant approved and investigational clinical applications, instrumentation & technology, chemistry and practical clinical issues in nuclear oncology. The basic science and current research topics of nuclear oncology are addressed in separate chapters. Nuclear medicine has become an essential component to all phases of the management of the patient with a malignant tumor and in some cases, even benign neoplasms. The standard of practice for many tumors requires PET/CT imaging at various stages of diagnosis and management. In addition to clinical applications, ongoing investigational efforts, which more and more involve multi-institutional protocols, are also presented. Features:;*;Focuses on the use of radionuclides in the diagnosis and treatment of malignant diseases;*;Emphasizes SPECT/CT and PET/CT with additional emphasis on the potential application of PET/MR;*;Describes relevant approved and investigational clinical applications, instrumentation & technology, chemistry and practical clinical issues in nuclear oncology;

Christoph Hoeschen, Soren Mattsson

editore: Springer

pagine: 176

This book explains clearly and in detail all aspects of radiation protection in nuclear medicine, including measurement quantities and units, detectors and dosimeters, and radiation biology. Discussion of radiation doses to patients and to embryos, fetuses, and children forms a central part of the book. Phantom models, biokinetic models, calculations, and software solutions are all considered, and a further chapter is devoted to quality assurance and reference levels. Occupational exposure also receives detailed attention. Exposure resulting from the production, labeling, and injection of radiopharmaceuticals and from contact with patients is discussed and shielding calculations are explained. The book closes by considering exposure of the public and summarizing the "rules of thumb" for radiation protection in nuclear medicine. This is an ideal textbook for students and a ready source of useful information for nuclear medicine specialists and medical physics experts.

La qualità nella preparazione dei radiofarmaci. Indicazioni per la pratica clinica

Giovanni Lucignani

editore: Springer Verlag

pagine: 256

La medicina nucleare, disciplina basata su tecnologie avanzate e caratterizzata da una continua attività di ricerca,non può prescindere per le attività specifiche dal perseguimento di un sistema di assicurazione della qualità e dal suo mantenimento per corrispondere alle aspettative di appropriatezza, efficacia e sostenibilità, garantendo agli operatori e ai pazienti condizioni di sicurezza sotto ogni profilo. I criteri di efficacia e sostenibilità sono oggetto di linee guida cliniche in continuo aggiornamento. Va quindi progressivamente riducendosi la discrezionalità degli operatori, la cui perizia e il cui senso etico e di responsabilità sono oggi considerati insufficienti per garantire la sicurezza e la qualità del servizio prestato, se non supportati dalla piena aderenza a ben definite procedure dettate dai requisiti normativi di riferimento. L'opera rappresenta un valido strumento nell'ambito di un programma di formazione e sostegno disciplinare e costituisce un indispensabile e aggiornato supporto per coloro che già operano nella medicina nucleare e per il personale in formazione che vi opererà.
