Praise for the 1st edition:

"Recommend[ed]...for beginners and masters alike. it is going to enhance the reader's breadth of information and talent to make sound scientific decisions." - medical Nuclear Medicine

Ideal for self-assessment, the second one version of Case-Based Nuclear Medicine has been absolutely up to date to mirror the most recent nuclear imaging know-how, together with state of the art cardiac imaging structures and the newest on PET/CT.

Each bankruptcy is filled with top of the range photographs that display the full-range of regularly encountered disorder manifestations as visible within the perform of nuclear medication. The lavishly illustrated situations commence with the scientific presentation and a concise sufferer historical past through imaging findings, differential diagnoses, the definitive prognosis and follow-up info, a short dialogue of the heritage for every analysis, and an inventory of pearls and pitfalls.


  • Comprehensive insurance of every thing from unmarried
    photon emission computed tomography to PET/CT imaging
  • Cases awarded as 'unknowns' let readers to
    improve their very own differential diagnoses - similar to at the examination
  • Over four hundred high-resolution pictures, together with full-color
    PET/CT and cardiac scintigraphic photographs, rfile the circumstances
  • Numerous counsel, methods, pearls, and pitfalls spotlight
    key issues on the finish of every bankruptcy
  • A scratch-off code offers year of entry to
    RadCases, a searchable on-line database of 250 must-know nuclear medication situations

This basic atlas is a necessary source for all citizens and fellows
in radiology and nuclear medication as they assessment for checks and get ready for rounds. Clinicians will locate the succinct presentation of circumstances a useful quickly reference in day-by-day practice.

Sample text

The patient underwent surgical excision for Ewing sarcoma. No additional follow-up is available. Discussion The role of skeletal scintigraphy in primary malignant bone tumors is to assess for metastatic disease and skip lesions. Nonosseous metastasis will often show tracer uptake, although the absence of uptake does not exclude the presence of metastasis. CT is frequently used to assess for metastasis, especially in the lungs. Patients may present with pain, fever, and an elevated white blood cell count (WBC), which can mimic osteomyelitis; therefore, three-phase skeletal scintigraphy is limited in distinguishing the two entities in such clinical scenarios.

Bilateral breast uptake can be a normal finding. The patient was to complete chemotherapy and radiation therapy for cervical carcinoma and then undergo a left mastectomy. Discussion Assessing the urinary bladder and kidneys on skeletal scintigraphy should be a routine practice. The absence of native kidney uptake should alert the clinician to consider a superscan, or to look for ptotic/ ectopic/transplanted kidneys. An additional clue to the presence of a functioning kidney is normal clearance of tracer and uptake of tracer by the skeletal system 3 hours after tracer injection.

A mixed phase, in which the proliferative phase overlaps the resorptive phase, can also occur, as shown in this case on the skull radiographs. The incidence of malignant transformation in pagetoid bone is low. When the patient experiences pain in the involved bone, however, further evaluation for malignant transformation is warranted. Pearls and Pitfalls  • • • If malignant change is suspected in a patient with known Paget disease, radiographic investigation is required. Sarcomatous changes in a bone already involved with Paget disease may show a relative absence of tracer localization.
