This volume, designed primarily for the nuclear medical expert, is organized in the broad categories of instrumentation, dynamic function studies, radiopharmaceuticals and dosimetry, and organ scanning; but it really represents a series of concise odes in nuclear medicine. As a result, the reader looking for information on a specific topic will be rewarded if his subject is included in this text. And even though many of the papers are but brief discussions, the bibliographies are in general good enough so that the volume will frequently serve as a "place to start."
In contrast to much of the current literature which emphasizes radioisotope scanning, perhaps the strongest section of this work is that on dynamic function studies. Included here are a reevaluation of the roentgenogram, a discussion of cardiac output (complete with a chapter on the underlying theory), and cerebral blood flow measurement.
A valid criticism can be raised that topics
