Master the physics of nuclear medicine with thorough explanations of analytic equations and illustrative graphs to make them accessible. Discover the technologies used in state-of-the-art nuclear medicine imaging systems Fully grasp the process of emission computed tomography with advanced mathematical concepts presented in the appendices. Chapters 20 and 21 introduce common digital image processing methods and tracer kinetic modeling and clinical applications, and the last 2 chapters discuss the radiation safety and protection aspects of nuclear medicine, namely MIRD-based internal dosimetry and health physics-related issues radioactive material handling and disposal, radiation exposure, shielding, monitoring, and protection regulations.
