The ability to determine the exact molecular structure of the coordination compounds by using modern powerful analytical tools such as NMR, mass spectroscopy and X ray diffraction has contributed to the understanding of the structure-activity relationships underlying the biological behaviour of Tc-99m agents.Consequently, careful design of new ligands and their Tc-99m complexes led to the discovery of imaging agents for perfusion in the myocardium and brain, thereby extending the scope of diagnostic imaging using Tc-99m radiopharmaceuticals. Based on the new developments in Tc chemistry, there is good scope for the development of new radiopharmaceuticals for imaging cancer as well as certain specific disease conditions.The IAEA organized a Coordinated Research Project (CRP) with the specific objective to develop labelled biomolecules with the novel Tc-99m metal cores
  • such as the Tc-99m-Carbonyl, Tc-99m-Nitrido, Tc-99m (4+1) and Tc-99m-HYNIC cores. The preparation, quality assessment and biological evaluations of a large number of Tc-99m complexes with biomolecules such as RGD peptides, annexin derived peptides, fatty acid derivatives, quinazoline derivatives and glucose analogues were achieved by the participants during the CRP. The results obtained from the participating laboratories are summarized in this publication. x BIC Subject & Qualifiers: Nuclear medicine (MMN) BISAC Subject: MEDICAL / Radiology & Nuclear Medicine (MED080000) Readership Level: Professional & Vocational Postgraduate, Research & Scholarly x Area Organisation Role UK Stationery Office Books Distributor AU Central Book Services Distributor NZ Central Book Services Distributor _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Intercomparison of Personal Dose Equivalent Measurements by Active Personal Dosimeters Final International Atomic Energy Agency (Author) EURADOS (Author) Series: IAEA-TECDOC Series Edition: No. 1564 Imprint: International Atomic Publisher: IAEA Energy Agency (IAEA) Pub Date: 10 Apr 2008 Publishing Status: Active Published in: Austria Paperback 6pp ISBN13: 9789201066077 ISBN10: 9201066074 x Main UK Distributor: Stationery Office Books x x Description: Dated November 2007. x BIC Subject & Qualifiers: Nuclear medicine (MMN) BISAC Subject: MEDICAL / Radiology & Nuclear Medicine (MED080000) Readership Level: Professional & Vocational x Area Organisation Role UK Stationery Office Books Distributor AU Central Book Services Distributor NZ Central Book Services Distributor _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Review: NMT Program Manager , Larry Gibson -- "It is an awesome book which I have highly recommend to my students, and plan to make a required text next Fall Term. I appreciate your dedication and contribution to the field of Nuclear Medicine." Program Director and Chief Instructor, Nuclear Medicine Program, Methodist University Hospital Schools of Radiologic and Imaging Sciences, Nancy Clifton, RT, CNMT -- "As you can imagine I get a fair amount of calls from alumni, peers, etc. wanting to know what is the 'latest and greatest' book they should have in their departments. Hands down I will be recommending your Second Edition as the one they 'ought to buy', as I believe it is a balanced text and can serve as an excellent departmental guide - especially for those procedures not performed on a routine basis. Plus, as we all are faced with increasing 'multi- cultural' language issues, the book continues to be a vital resource as we all work to improve our 'patient teaching'." Retired Professor of Nuclear Medicine , Max H. Lombardi -- "A close and thorough examination of the book indicates that it is an excellent source of detailed and up-to-date information on Nuclear Medicine procedures as they are applied today in the U.S. The book is definitely a good reference for practicing physicians, NM technologists, as well as teachers and students in NMT programs across the country. I appreciate the book's organization in alphabetical order rather than in the classic organ systems way. The alphabetical approach makes it easier to find any procedure instantly. In conclusion, the book is a valuable

In so doing, the authors have attempted to deal with the relevant issues that a laboratory director must address in either setting up the laboratory or maintaining its competitive edge and clinical competence over time. The authors primarily attempted to identify issues related to outpatient imaging facilities. However, where appropriate issues related to inpatients in hospital-based laboratories are also discussed. In this new edition, the authors have kept the basic format established in the first edition. In addition to reviewing, modifying and updating each chapter in the first edition, they have added entirely new chapters on PET imaging, hybrid imaging and the clinical appropriateness of nuclear cardiology procedures. x BIC Subject & Qualifiers: Cardiovascular medicine (MJD) Nuclear medicine (MMN) Dewey: 616.1207575(DC22) BISAC Subject: Cardiology (MED010000) Radiology (MED080000) Diagnostic Imaging (MED019000) LC Subject Heading: Heart Medical laboratories Readership Level: Professional & Vocational x

The addition of functional image information to conventional staging procedures - be it through positron emission tomography (PET) as a stand-alone unit or the development of combined PET/computed tomography (CT) or by correlation of modalities using software-based image fusion - represents a further improvement in the diagnostic pathway. Since therapeutic strategies are changing, the characterization of molecular processes, as delivered by nuclear medicine procedures, become more and more important. To reach a decision, anatomical-morphological information about the location and texture of a lesion is crucial, as is the functional-metabolic characterization and general information on the spread of the disease throughout the body. Furthermore, monitoring of response to therapy and diagnostic follow-up to detect recurrent disease demand detailed information about the properties of a tumor and its relationship to surrounding tissues. The information needed to strategically plan the therapeutic management can be provided by correlative imaging such as PET and CT or PET/CT. This book is a comprehensive compilation of the accumulated knowledge on PET and PET/CT in oncology. It covers the entire spectrum from solidly documented indications, such as staging and monitoring of lung and colorectal cancer, to the application of PET/CT in head and neck surgery, gynecology, radiation therapy, urology, pediatrics and others. The chapters are supplemented by an introduction into theunderlying techniques of both imaging devices and radiopharmacy. The book is aimed at the nuclear medicine and radiology specialist as well as the interested physician, who will receive an update of the possibilities and limitations of PET and PET/CT in oncology. x BIC Subject & Qualifiers: Oncology (MJCL) Radiology (MMPH) Nuclear medicine (MMN) Dewey: 616.99407575(DC22) BISAC Subject: Oncology (MED062000) Radiology (MED080000) Readership Level: Professional & Vocational x

Up to the present day, the diagnosis and treatment of cancer has been primarily surgical. When a mass or an enlarged lymph node is detected, immediate attempts are made to remove it or obtain a histological diagnosis by biopsy. Today, characterization of molecular processes in cancerous lesions by PET can help to determine whether therapy should be aggressive or postponed. The most important reason for the rapid acceptance of PET imaging is its value in the care of patients with suspected or known cancer, for establishing the diagnosis, planning and monitoring therapy, and in detecting early recurrence. Written for nuclear medicine professionals, non-nuclear medicine physicians and the public, this book chronicles the development of nuclear medicine together with its basic philosophy in the past, present and future.

As such, it can be an extraordinarily difficult subject to cover in one book. Drawn from years of class notes, student interaction and personal experience, "Foundations of Biomedical Ultrasound" does just that. It covers the fundamental engineering behind ultrasound equipment, properties of acoustic wave motion, the behaviour of waves in various media, non-linear waves and the creation of images. The most comprehensive book on the subject, "Foundations of Biomedical Ultrasound" is an indispensable reference for any medical professional working with ultrasound imaging, and a comprehensive introduction to the subject for students. The book consists of ten chapters that bridge the spectrum from the fundamental properties of wave propagation through to clinical systems. The first four chapters describe linear and nonlinear propagation, and methods for calculating the field produced by transducers of various designs. A number of problems designed to test the reader's understanding, well-suited for formal class assignments, accompany these chapters. The topics of ultrasound scattering, and transducer design are addressed in chapters 5 and 6. The final four chapters address methods of imaging and flow measurement. Some 350 drawings, graphs, sketches and colour images have been used. These, together with many tables, have been used to illustrate the various topics covered; a substantial portion of which are appearing for the first time in print. Contents: 1. Introduction; 2. Theoretical Basis for Field Calculations; 3. Field Profile Analysis; 4. Nonlinear Ultrasonics; 5. Scattering of Ultrasound; 6. Ultrasound Transducers; 7. Ultrasound Image Arrays; 8. Ultrasound Imaging Systems: Design, Properties, and Applications; 9. Principles of Doppler Ultrasound; 10.
