Role Of The Nuclear Medicine Physician

The previous brief discussions on basic aspects of radionuclide therapy really describe the role of the nuclear medicine physician. This role is summed up in Table 3. This text emphasizes our role as physicians in nuclear medicine where good medical practice is at the heart of all specialized procedures. We have designed the chapters to provide succinct backgrounds, useful reference lists, concise tables of instructions, and considerations of practice for each procedure. This text will be valuable to the new practitioner as well as the old hand who needs to brush up knowledge for an upcoming seldom-performed procedure.
