Basic Sciences of Nuclear Medicine by Magdy Khalil

By Magdy Khalil

Nuclear drugs has develop into an ever-changing and increasing diagnostic and healing scientific career. The daily strategies obvious within the box are, in nice half, a result of integration of many medical bases with advanced technologic advances. the purpose of this reference ebook, uncomplicated Sciences of Nuclear medication, is to supply the reader with a complete and distinct dialogue of the medical bases of nuclear medication, masking different themes and ideas that underlie a few of the investigations and approaches played within the box. subject matters contain radiation and nuclear physics, Tc-99m chemistry, single-photon radiopharmaceuticals and puppy chemistry, radiobiology and radiation dosimetry, snapshot processing, picture reconstruction, quantitative SPECT imaging, quantitative cardiac SPECT, small animal imaging (including multimodality hybrid imaging, e.g., PET/CT, SPECT/CT, and PET/MRI), compartmental modeling, and tracer kinetics.

Sample text

Incineration of refuse containing nonvolatile radionuclides concentrates the activity in the ash. If the ash contains undesirable high activity, special disposal methods should be adopted. The ash can be diluted and disposed without exceeding the specified limits or buried. The design of the incinerator for handling the radioactive waste should be considered at the planning stage. 3 Management of Cadavers Containing Radionuclides An unfortunate situation arises if a patient dies after administration of a high amount of radioactivity and the radiation limits are more than the threshold level for releasing the body from the hospital.
