OXFORD MEDICAL PUBLICATIONS Nuclear Cardiology 2nd Edition PDF several years, nuclear cardiology has presented healthcare providers
and patients with important clinical information regarding the presence and
severity of coronary artery disease as well as other applications. Because
of its value, it is now an important part of non-invasive evaluation, particularly in patients with suspected or known coronary artery disease. In
recent years, the indicati
ons for nuclear cardiology imaging procedures have expanded beyond that important group of patient into other clinical arenas, especially with the emergence of cardiovascular positron emission tomography (PET) imaging. These include patients under consideration for device implantation, cardiac amyloid or sarcoid involvement, infection sources especially with devices, and vulnerable plaque imaging. Thus the knowledge base of this vibrant field continues to expand, as do indications and changes in instrumentation.
The performance and interpretation of nuclear cardiology studies is only
as good as the understanding by technologists and physicians of how the
images are obtained and the methodology behind them. While it is obvious that this is important for technologists, it is equally valuable for the interpreting physicians to be able to distinguish real from not real abnormalities.
This Handbook by Drs Sabharwal, Arumugam, and Kelion is designed to
provide basic information on all important aspects of nuclear cardiology.
Each chapter provides background on important aspects of camera tech-
nology, tracers, processing for both single photon emission computed tom-
ography (SPECT) and PET, as well as a glimpse into the newer aspects of
cardiovascular PET for imaging inflammation and infection. As such, the
book is well suited for both physicians in training or who have completed
training, technologists, and finally those considering certification examina-
tions such as the Certification Board of Nuclear Cardiology (CBNC) exam
in the United States. The readers will not be disappointed.
