Nuclear Cardiac Imaging: Principles and Applications
This is a definitive edited work on the assessment of heart problems through nuclear imaging and exercise testing, now in its second edition. New imaging agents, the shift from planar to SPECT imaging, and greater computer capabilities are all reflected in this completely rewritten volume.Technical aspects are described when necessary.
