This book, now in its third edition, aims to promote a deeper understanding of the scientific and clinical basis of nuclear medicine and the new directions in medical imaging. The new edition has been revised and updated to reflect recent changes and to ensure that the contents are in line with likely future directions. The book starts by providing essential information on general pathophysiology, cell structure and cell biology as well as the mechanisms of radiopharmaceutical localization in different tissues and cells. The clinical applications of nuclear medicine are then presented in a series of chapters that cover every major organ system and relate the basic knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathology to the clinical utilization of various scintigraphic modalities. The therapeutic applications of nuclear medicine are discussed in a separate chapter, and the final chapter is devoted to the biologic effects of ionizing radiations, including radiation from medical procedures.
Synopsis of Pathophysiology in Nuclear Medicine
Release on 2014-05-24 | by Abdelhamid H. Elgazzar
The book concisely describes relevant anatomic and physiologic considerations for each organ system and the pathophysiologic features of different relevant diseases and relates them to the scintigraphy of each system.
This Synopsis of Nuclear Medicine Pathophysiology arose from the recognition that there is a need for a compact, readable account of this complex and important subject. The book concisely describes relevant anatomic and physiologic considerations for each organ system and the pathophysiologic features of different relevant diseases and relates them to the scintigraphy of each system. It thereby provides an informative synopsis of the pathophysiologic basis of nuclear medicine and molecular imaging. The volume will serve as a quick reference that will help the reader to understand different diagnostic scintigraphic patterns and to select appropriate treatment modalities based on functional imaging. It will prove useful to undergraduates and postgraduates as well as to practitioners in clinical and research fields.
The Pathophysiologic Basis of Nuclear Medicine 2006
This book, now in an extensively revised second edition, summarizes the basic principles of nuclear medicine and describes the clinical applications of commonly used nuclear medicine procedures and techniques.
This book, now in an extensively revised second edition, summarizes the basic principles of nuclear medicine and describes the clinical applications of commonly used nuclear medicine procedures and techniques. Readers will find clear explanation of clinical indications, the pathophysiological basis of functional procedures, and the complementary role of nuclear medicine and molecular imaging in relation to diagnostic radiology. Throughout, emphasis is placed on the added diagnostic value offered by the new hybrid imaging modalities. The various therapeutic applications of nuclear medicine are also discussed. Compared with the first edition, technical details have been significantly simplified. The book will be an ideal introduction to nuclear medicine for medical students and will serve as an excellent quick reference for referring physicians, enabling them to utilize this modern medical specialty more efficiently.

This invaluable and well-presented text brings together previously fragmented or incompletely elucidated data on the impressive recent advances in orthopedic nuclear medicine. The book begins by acquainting the readers with various anatomic, physiologic, pathologic and technical concepts crucial to understanding orthopedic nuclear medicine and its utilization in clinical practice. Subsequent chapters detail the diagnosis of skeletal infections, trauma, vascular disorders, metabolic and neoplastic bone diseases, soft tissue calcifications and joint disorders. A separate section is devoted to the use of radionuclides in the treatment of bone and joint diseases. A unique feature of this richly illustrated volume is its comprehensive and clinically oriented approach. The book will prove invaluable to all with an interest in diagnostic and therapeutic orthopedics, including radiologists, orthopedists, rheumatologists, pediatricians, other clinicians and nuclear medicine professionals.

Building on the traditional concept of nuclear medicine, this textbook presents cutting-edge concepts of hybrid imaging and discusses the close interactions between nuclear medicine and other clinical specialties, in order to achieve the best possible outcomes for patients. Today the diagnostic applications of nuclear medicine are no longer stand-alone procedures, separate from other diagnostic imaging modalities. This is especially true for hybrid imaging guided interventional radiology or surgical procedures. Accordingly, today’s nuclear medicine specialists are actually specialists in multimodality imaging (in addition to their expertise in the diagnostic and therapeutic uses of radionuclides). This new role requires a new core curriculum for training nuclear medicine specialists. This textbook is designed to meet these new educational needs, and to prepare nuclear physicians and technologists for careers in this exciting specialty.

Let $A$ be a finite abelian group. The author sets up an algebraic framework for studying $A$-equivariant complex-orientable cohomology theories in terms of a suitable kind of equivariant formal group. He computes the equivariant cohomology of many spaces in these terms, including projective bundles (and associated Gysin maps), Thom spaces,

Historically, applications of algebraic topology to the study of topological transformation groups were originated in the work of L. E. 1. Brouwer on periodic transformations and, a little later, in the beautiful fixed point theorem ofP. A. Smith for prime periodic maps on homology spheres. Upon comparing the fixed point
