This text is a welcome extension of the second edition that retains the fundamentals that anchor the title’s distinguished reputation. It has been thoroughly revised and updated to incorporate cutting-edge diagnostic techniques. The third edition serves as an excellent resource for physicians whose nuclear medicine practices include children and provides a vast amount of background material for residents in training.
Strategically expanded throughout, the third edition features:
