Product information Teaching Atlas of Nuclear Medicine

A highly visual clinical case review of nuclear medicine

Ideal for self-assessment, the second edition of Case-Based Nuclear Medicine has been fully updated to reflect the latest nuclear imaging technology, including cutting-edge cardiac imaging systems and the latest on PET/CT.

Each chapter is packed with high-quality images that demonstrate the full-range of commonly encountered disease manifestations as seen in the practice of nuclear medicine. The lavishly illustrated cases begin with the clinical presentation and a concise patient history followed by imaging findings, differential diagnoses, the definitive diagnosis and follow-up information, a brief discussion of the background for each diagnosis, and a list of pearls and pitfalls.

Features:

  • Comprehensive coverage of everything from single photon emission computed tomography to PET/CT imaging
  • Cases presented as 'unknowns' enable readers to develop their own differential diagnoses - just like on the exam
  • Over 400 high-resolution images, including full-color PET/CT and cardiac scintigraphic images, document the cases
  • Numerous tips, tricks, pearls, and pitfalls highlight key points at the end of each chapter
  • A scratch-off code provides 12 months of access to RadCases, a searchable online database of 250 must-know nuclear medicine cases

This user-friendly atlas is an essential resource for all residents and fellows in radiology and nuclear medicine as they review for exams and prepare for rounds. Clinicians will find the succinct presentation of cases an invaluable quick reference in daily practice.

Frequently asked questions

What is an e-book?
An e-book is the electronic edition of a printed book that is available as a file.
The content does not differ from the printed edition of the book. Thieme offers electronic books in PDF and EPUB formats.

What formats are there and how do they differ?
Thieme offers electronic books in PDF and EPUB formats.
The PDF format corresponds 1:1 to the printed book and has a fixed page layout. It is therefore ideal for computers, tablets and larger e-readers.
E-books in EPUB format adapt dynamically to the display size of the reading device. It is therefore particularly suitable for smaller devices such as smartphones and small-format tablets and e-readers.

Do I need a special program to open the e-book?
Free reading programs for e-books are available for all operating systems and reading devices: for PDFs, for example, Adobe Acrobat Reader, for EPUBs, for example, Adobe Digital Editions.

How does the download work?
You will find a download link on the order confirmation page and in your order confirmation email. Click on this link to start the download and save the file in a directory of your choice.

Can I read the e-book on multiple devices?
Yes, you can use your e-book on multiple reading devices.

Do I have to be online to read e-books?
No, after downloading to your reading device you can access the e-book offline at any time.

Are Thieme e-books copy-protected?
Yes, e-books are protected by a digital watermark. This means that there are no restrictions for you when using them.

Am I allowed to lend or sell e-books?
E-books are for private use only and may not be lent or sold.

Am I allowed to exchange or return the e-book?
Due to their nature, e-books are not suitable for return. Just like downloads of other electronic files (films, music or software), e-books are excluded from the right of withdrawal. A return or exchange is therefore not possible.
