Nuclear cardiac imaging refers to cardiac radiological diagnostic techniques performed with the aid of radiopharmaceuticals, which are perfused into the myocardium as markers. These imaging studies provide a wide range of information about the heart, including the contractility of the heart, the amount of blood supply to the heart and whether parts of the heart muscle are alive or dead. This is essential information for cardiologists, and nuclear imaging has become an increasingly important part of the cardiologist’s armamentarium. Chapters in Nuclear Cardiac Imaging cover historical, technical and physiological considerations, diagnosis and prognosis, conditions other than Coronary Artery Disease (CAD), advanced cardiac imaging, and challenges and opportunities. New to the sixth edition are key point summaries at the start of each chapter, clinical cases with videos, and a question and answer chapter on practical issues. This volume is ideal for nuclear cardiologists in training and nuclear clinicians alike who are searching for quick answers to important clinical and technical questions.

  • Over 450 high-quality images supplement concise text for quick answers to important clinical and technical questions
  • Highlights advances in cardiac imaging including hybrid imaging, cardiovascular molecular imaging, and the use of artificial intelligence
  • Addresses challenges for nuclear cardiology including physician certification and lab accreditation, cost-effectiveness of imaging, guidelines and appropriate use criteria, and radiation considerations
