This book fills a notable void in the nuclear cardiology literature. As opposed to other works on the subject, this book is primarily directed at clinicians who incorporate nuclear imaging techniques into their practice of cardiovascular medicine. Although not an exhaustive work, this book covers all major aspects of nuclear cardiac imaging.
