Reviews

Radiology 2008:

"... The book is logically organized, clearly written, and thorough. The illustrations are of highest quality and are selected to complement the text. In conclusion, this book has admirably fulfilled its goal. It remains the definitive textbook on the practice of pediatric nuclear medicine and incorporates into this edition the innovations in the field during the last decade. The book is well worth its price and highly recommended for any physician or nuclear medicine technologist involved in pediatric nuclear imaging."
