Pediatric nuclear medicine by S. T Treves( Book )

8 editions published between 1974 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book comes at a good time. The differentiation of pediatric nuclear medicine from the general practice of nuclear medicine has developed over the past 15 years and is now a reality. Dr. Treves has been one of a small band of pediatric specialists who have made this happen. He recounts the reasons for this in his introduction-the development of technetium-99m labeled radiopharmaceuticals making possible the use of these procedures in nonmalignant diseases, the appreciation that infants and children require special techniques and adapted technology, the availability of computer methods for handling the dynamic data of pediatric cardiology and urology, and the difference in the spectrum of disease seen in the pediatric versus the adult nuclear medicine clinic. The book is a compendium of a single-person's experience, rather than the amalgam generally found in a multiauthored work. In a sense this is atavistic, but it provides the old-fashioned comfort of a coherent and per sonal approach. Its success is due largely to Dr. Treves' broad experience and his special talent for describing each test in relation to this experience. It is probably aided by the relatively recent emergence of pediatric nuclear medicine as a special activity and follows in the footsteps of other volumes on the pediatric subspecialties that have taken off from general adult prac tice in the past

Presented in an interesting, historical and philosophical way, this book describes the current state of play in brain imaging, showing the differences among the different imaging modalities, and reviewing the knowledge about the chemical reactions in the brain, and their relationship to thinking, feeling and acting. The book reviews all the results of PET and PET/CT imaging of the brain with all radiopharmaceuticals that bind to receptors in all recognized and classified mental diseases, as well as the studies on the localization of those sites that are activated by sensory or motor activity

The definitive text by the foremost authorities on positron emission tomography (PET) has now been thoroughly revised to reflect the major alterations in PET technology and practice since the introduction of PET/CT scanners. Now, this Second Edition includes many PET/CT images and new chapters dealing with CT scanning and PET/CT image fusion. The major focus is on strategies to optimally integrate CT and PET to a "one-stop" diagnosis for cancer, heart disease, neurologic disorders, psychiatric disorders, infection, inflammation, and other conditions
A Personal History of Nuclear Medicine by Henry N Wagner( )

14 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book outlines the history of the development of nuclear medicine and describes the hurdles that nuclear medicine has had to face, in view of the perception of risk of radiation. Up to the present day, the diagnosis and treatment of cancer has been primarily surgical. When a mass or an enlarged lymph node is detected, immediate attempts are made to remove it or obtain a histological diagnosis by biopsy. Today, characterization of molecular processes in cancerous lesions by PET can help to determine whether therapy should be aggressive or postponed. The most important reason for the rapid a

Frontiers in nuclear medicine( Book )

4 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Zurich at the 7th International Annual Meeting of the Society of Nuclear Hedicine in Europe, held in 1969, a group of young scientists from eleven countries dedicated some papers to the memory of Georg von Hevesy. The papers were published in a book entitled "Frontiers of Nuclear Medicine" (Springer-verlag Berlin, Heidelberg, New York). On the occasion of the Second International World Congress of Nuclear Medicine and Biology held in 1978 in Washington D.C., under the presidency of Henry N. Wagner, Jr., a group of young scientists again dedicated important papers from the Congress to the memory of Georg von Hevesy. This book consists of these papers, which present new results in the field of Nuclear Medicine reported by physicians, physicists, chemists, engineers, and computer scientists. The Georg von Hevesy Foundation of Nuclear Medicine in Zurich, Switzerland together with the president of the Second World Congress of Nuclear Medicine, Henry N. Wagner, Jr., have been the major forces in arranging publication of this book. The Georg von Hevesy Foundation is sponsoring the Hevesy Prize for Nuclear Medicine, the Hevesy Medal, and the Hevesy Memorial Lecture
