After many years of postgraduate training, many physicians have forgotten some (or most) of their undergraduate and high school physics and may find submersion into nuclear physics somewhat daunting. This book begins with a very basic introduction to nuclear physics and the interactions of radiation and matter. It then proceeds with a discussion of the methods for production of nuclides and the instrumentation used for dose measurement, surveying radioactivity, and imaging. The imaging section has been expanded to cover MRI and PET‐MRI in addition to SPECT, PET, and PET‐CT. The final chapters of the book focus on radiation biology, radiation safety, radiopharmaceutical therapy, and radiation accidents.
Numerous illustrations are included. They are highly schematic and are designed to illustrate concepts rather than represent scale models of their subjects. This text is intended for radiology residents, cardiology fellows, nuclear medicine residents and fellows, nuclear medicine technology students, and others interested in an introduction to concepts in nuclear medicine physics and instrumentation.
