This Third Edition
of Nuclear Medicine Physics and Instrumentation
expands this illustrated review and introductory guide to nuclear medicine physics and instrumentation. The authors present nuclear medicine-related physics and engineering concepts clearly and concisely. Included in the text are introductory chapters on relevant quantum mechanics, methods of radionuclide production, and the interaction of radiation with matter. Further, the text discusses the basic function of the components of scintillation and non-scintillation detector systems. An information technology section discusses PACs and DICOM, and their quality control procedures.
