Nuclear Hepatology: A Textbook of Hepatobiliary Diseases (Google eBook)
Springer Science & Business Media, Jun 23, 2009 - Medical - 380 pages
This second edition of Nuclear Hepatology: A Textbook of Hepatobiliary Diseases has been revised so as to encompass all of the most recent developments in the field. The result is a comprehensive, up-to-date book that will serve as a ready reference and a clinical and procedural guide. The authors, both of whom are nuclear medicine physicians, present nuclear hepatobiliary imaging techniques in the context of the many other possible diagnostic studies, thereby acquainting the reader with the role of these procedures. Throughout, care is taken to maintain a clear clinical focus and to emphasize the importance of integrating information on morphology and quantitative physiology as the basis for diagnosis. Each of the chapters is well illustrated and referenced. This book will prove invaluable not only to nuclear medicine physicians but also to practitioners of radiology, internal medicine, pediatrics, gastroenterology, hepatology, primary care, general surgery, and liver transplantation surgery.
