The various patterns of accumulation of radiotracers are related to specific pathophysiologic changes - the volume takes this principle as a starting point. The book provides a new approach to understanding diagnostic and therapeutic nuclear medicine by linking the pathophysiologic changes of relevant disease processes to scintigraphy. This permits accurate identification of various imaging patterns with more meaningful interpretation. Through the use of illustrations, charts and tables, this link is presented simply and clearly. The book is intended not only for nuclear physicians and technologists, but also for the referring physicians, who will understand the effective utilization of nuclear medicine and its impact on patient management.
