Nuclear cardiology has demonstrated continuous dramatic growth for over 20 years and has become central to the clinical evaluation of patients with known or suspected coronary artery disease (CAD). Recently, gated SPECT has emerged as the most common approach to myocardial perfusion imaging, and is performed in the majority of nuclear cardiology studies. The use of gated SPECT has resulted in potentially dramatic improvement in the evaluation of CAD, allowing for the routine assessment of both perfusion and function from a single study. This book comprises 12 chapters by leading physicians and scientists in the field, and will be valuable to all students and physicians involved in cardiac imaging.
