Nuclear cardiology is critical for the medical evaluation of patients with heart disease. Clinical Nuclear Cardiology: Practical Applications and Future Directions is the second volume of this series. The volume provides information about the clinical application of imaging techniques (such as SPECT and PET) in clinical practice with the goal of guiding health care professionals to make informed decisions for identifying cardiac risk in patients with heart disease.

The information in the book covers four broad aspects of nuclear cardiology:

  • Myocardial Perfusion Scintigraphy
  • Fatty Acid Imaging
  • Neurotransmission imaging
  • Molecular Imaging and Preventive Medicine

Readers will be equipped with the information necessary for understanding the diagnosis and management of a variety of cardiomyopathies through various imaging technologies. This volume is a comprehensive reference for cardiologists and medical imaging technicians involved in clinical settings as well as medical students who require an understanding of the cardiovascular aspects of nuclear medicine.
