The book is very good overall and provides a thorough overview of topics related to radiation safety in the nuclear medicine environment.

I used both the first and second editions, and I would recommend the second edition because it is more up-to-date and it corrects some issues with the first by: Nuclear medicine uses radionuclides in medicine for diagnosis, staging of disease, therapy and monitoring the Radiation safety in nuclear medicine book of a disease process.

It is also used in the basic sciences such as biology, in drug discovery and in pre-clinical medicine. Nuclear medicine is described by three elements - clinical problem, the radiopharmaceutical and the instrumentation.

The book is very good overall and provides a thorough overview of topics related to radiation safety in the nuclear medicine environment. I used both the first and second editions, and I would recommend the second edition because it is more up-to-date and it corrects some issues with the first edition/5.

This book is a collection of all pertinent information on radiation safety applicable in nuclear medicine and research using radioactive materials. Radiation exposure causes harm to humans and is strictly controlled by several regulatory authorities (NRC, FDA, EPA, DOT, etc).Author: Gopal B.

Saha. Providing a basic understanding of nuclear medicine, its scientific basis, diagnostic and therapeutic applications, safety practices and regulations, and future directions, Radiation Safety in Nuclear Medicine, Second Edition. is the comprehensive reference for technologists, students, researchers, and other professionals in the Nuclear Medicine.
