This is the first concise guide to nuclear cardiology that provides a comprehensive overview of the current practice of the speciality and has been designed as a useful pocket reference to aid trainees and specialists during the process of acquiring and reporting nuclear cardiology scans.

This guide can be used as both an introductory text for newcomers to the technique as well as a reference for the more experienced.
