I'm PhD student doing SPECT research. This book is THE best I ever used so far. It is crystal clear about every concept it introduces . The writing is simply an art -- holding back on deep nuclear physics that I don't need, and meantime giving enough information for reader to have a complete picture and understanding. I'll say if you are a medical physics student or a graduate student who is doing nuclear medicine research, this book is THE perfect choice.
P.S. I also have the second edition of this book, which was also very well written. However, due to the development of nuclear medicine in recent 20 years, the fourth edition indeed adds on a lot of invaluable information.
This is a great addition to any library dealing with nuke med.... If one really wants to get a grasp on what makes things tick... it is a great book. I have found this to be a great refresher for my experience in nuclear engineering and nuclear medicine. For those in residency in Nuclear Medicine, buy it and learn from it.
This is one of the greatest introductory physics books available for nuclear medicine. The concepts are explained very clearly with color illustrations. i highly recommend it as a first introductory physics text for those new to the field of nuclear medicine.
