Nuclear Oncology describes the use of radionuclides in the diagnosis and management of malignant tumors. Both in vivo and in vitro techniques are included. The book was written by an international panel of authors, most, if not all, of whom are the pioneers of the techniques described. Their chapters reflect the universal views in the field of nuclear medicine and oncology. Clinical aspects and technical details are presented for both standard and new nuclear oncological techniques, including breast scintigraphy, receptor imaging, monoclonal antibodies and positron emission tomography. This information will therefore be helpful to those dealing with the diagnosis and therapy of cancer using radionuclides, including medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, oncologic surgeons, nuclear medicine physicians and radiologists. Attention is devoted to potential areas of clinical research in nuclear oncology. Therapeutic use of radionuclides is emphasized.
