Press release from: Thieme Publishers

New York/Stuttgart – Case-Based Nuclear Medicine, Second Edition, recently published by Thieme, presents the latest information on the field of nuclear medicine in a highly visual, case-driven format. The book has been updated to include the latest technology used for nuclear imaging, including the latest cardiac and PET/CT imaging systems.

"This book focuses on the common presentations of diseases, and describes the findings in a manner that will allow the reader to understand how images are affected by normal physiology and by disease,” says author Dr. Kevin Donohoe, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts. "The reader should then be able to apply that knowledge when encountering the innumerable variations in scan findings seen in the daily practice of medical imaging.”

The authors launch each case in this completely expanded edition with a clinical presentation and follow with concise patient histories, as well as imaging findings and differential diagnoses. Bullet-pointed pearls and pitfalls emphasize key points. To facilitate self-assessment, Case-Based Nuclear Medicine cases are presented as “unknown” cases requiring readers to develop their own differential diagnosis.

Case-Based Nuclear Medicine, an image-based approach to nuclear medicine, offers residents, fellows and clinicians a user-friendly atlas that's perfect for cramming for exams, preparing for rounds or using as a quick reference.

In addition, readers receive a scratch-off code that provides access to a full year of RadCases’ online database of 250 nuclear medicine cases.
