The second in a three-volume set exploring Problems and Solutions in Medical Physics, this volume explores common questions and their solutions in Nuclear Medicine. This invaluable study guide should be used in conjunction with other key textbooks in the field to provide additional learning opportunities.
Topics include radioactivity and nuclear transformation, radionuclide production and radiopharmaceuticals, non-imaging detectors and counters, instrumentation for gamma imaging, SPECT and PET/CT, imaging techniques, radionuclide therapy, internal radiation dosimetry, and quality control and radiation protection in nuclear medicine. Each chapter provides examples, notes, and references for further reading to enhance understanding.
- Consolidates concepts and assists in the understanding and applications of theoretical concepts in medical physics
- Assists lecturers and instructors in setting assignments and tests
- Suitable as a revision tool for postgraduate students sitting medical physics, oncology, and radiology sciences examinations
