In "Atlas of Nuclear Cardiology", Doctors Dilsizian and Narula have worked together with over a dozen leading authorities to capture the most up-to-date and pertinent information in the field of nuclear cardiology. This atlas is a modern and complete visual library of up-to-date information on the most current cardiovascular nuclear procedures in the clinical practice of cardiology. Together with detailed legends and extensive reference listings, the over 600 illustrations deliver comprehensive information. Diagnostic algorithms and schematic diagrams integrated with nuclear cardiology procedures are generously interspersed with color images to emphasize key concepts in cardiovascular physiology and metabolism. This vital reference provides a detailed and accurate insight into the noninvasive evaluation and quantification of myocardial perfusion, function, and metabolism.
