Nuclear Medicine, 2nd Edition: Case Review Series

by Harvey A. Ziessman
  • Paperback

This new volume in the popular CASE REVIEW series is the ideal text to prepare for certification and CAQ exams and ensure an up-to-date mastery of the field. Approximately 200 case studies challenge the reader's understanding to the radiologic interpretation and diagnosis for nuclear medicine. Each case study is followed by 3 or 4 questions that mimic the format of the certification exams. Answers and rationales are also provided. Three different difficulty levels test fundamental, intermediate, and advanced skills. The result is a focused and effective way for readers to hone their knowledge.

• Features approximately 200 randomly organized cases which address topics such as scintigraphy, SPECT, and PET imaging · PET single pulmonary nodule · primary brain tumor · bullseye · and Alzheimer's.
• Provides 400 images for a realistic simulation of the challenges faced on the exams and in practice.
• Organizes the questions and images on one side of the page, answers for the questions along with rationales, references and cross references on the flip side.
• Cross Referenced to Thrall: Nuclear Medicine: The Requisites
