A thorough, practical review of nuclear cardiology - covering everything from when to refer and which test to prescribe to interpreting resultsUpdated with new and emerging techniquesNuclear Cardiology: Practical Applicationsprovides concise, expert guidance on indications for nuclear cardiology procedures, specification of tests, and interpretation of results. Completely updated with the latest techniques and procedures, this well-illustrated guide is essential to clinicians who require a practical understanding of this specialty as well as trainees, including cardiology fellows and radiology residents. It is also a must-have review for anyone seeking certification or recertification in nuclear medicine technology.Nuclear Cardiology: Practical Applicationsis divided into five sections:The Building Blocks of Nuclear Cardiology; Radionuclide Myocardial Perfusion Imaging: Procedures and Interpretation; Other Nuclear Cardiology Procedures; Applications and Indications of Nuclear Cardiology; and Alternative Non-Invasive Cardiac Procedures. Taken as a whole, this resource is the best guide available to the clinical application and patient management aspects of nuclear cardiology.Features: Coverage of new and emerging techniques in nuclear medicine, such as fatty acid and neurohumoral imaging, the use of hybrid technology, and cardiac positron emission tomograhic (PET) imaging Emphasis on indications for tests helps you decide which nuclear test is the best choice for a particular problem Valuable perspective of nuclear cardiology's role in patient management Review questions at the end of each chapter assure understanding of the material and prepare you for certification testing NEWchapters on quality initiatives in nuclear cardiology and the appropriate use of SPECT and PET procedures Full-color insert of radiograph imagesContent that reflects the latest advances and techniques: Indications for Nuclear Cardiology Procedures; Indications for Nuclear Imaging Procedures; Known Coronary Artery Disease; Preoperative Risk Assessment for Non-cardiac Surgery; Evaluation of Myocardial Viability; Role of Myocardial Perfusion Imaging in the Assessment of the Diabetic Patient; Assessment of Women; Acute Rest Myocardial Perfusion Imaging in the Emergency Department; Indications for Equilibrium Radionuclide Angiography; Appropriateness Criteria in Nuclear Cardiology Testing; Nuclear Cardiology: Procedures and Interpretation; Performing the Test: Exercise and Pharmacologic Stress Testing; Radionuclide Myocardial Perfusion Imaging Protocols; Quality Control for Myocardial Perfusion Imaging; Interpretation of Myocardial Perfusion Imaging; Basics of ECG-Gated SPECT Imaging; Interpretation of Ventricular Function UsingECG-Gated SPECT Imaging; Clinically Relevant Report Writing; Alternative Cardiac Procedures; Cardiac Positron Emission Tomography Imaging; Exercise Tolerance Testing without Imaging; Evaluation of Ventricular Performance with Scientific Techniques; Echocardiography; Chapter 21.
