Introduction

Nuclear cardiology is critical for the medical evaluation of patients with heart disease. Clinical Nuclear Cardiology: Practical Applications and Future Directions is the second volume of this series. The volume provides information about the clinical application of imaging techniques (such as SPECT and PET) in clinical practice with the goal of guiding health care professionals to make informed decisions for identifying cardiac risk in patients with heart disease.

The information in the book covers four broad aspects of nuclear cardiology:

  • - Myocardial Perfusion Scintigraphy
  • - Fatty Acid Imaging
  • - Neurotransmission imaging
  • - Molecular Imaging and Preventive Medicine

Readers will be equipped with information necessary for understanding the diagnosis and management of a variety of cardiomyopathies through various imaging technologies. This volume is a comprehensive reference for cardiologists and medical imaging technicians involved in clinical settings as well as medical students who require an understanding of the cardiovascular aspects of nuclear medicine.

Foreword

How can we best practice the clinical nuclear medicine? This eBook is designed to explain some methods regarding nuclear cardiology, which would be instructive for physicians and scientists. This book would tell what is nuclear cardiology, or how non-invasive imaging is used, from clinical evidences. The Nuclear cardiology has demonstrated continuous dramatic growth over 40 years. This book is composed of recent progress of the nuclear cardiology by leading physicians and scientists in this field. I am sure that this eBook would be useful for daily practice of all the physicians and scientists interested in this field.
