Only those procedures that the editors considered to be currently accepted and most representative of the various clinical procedures used are described and discussed in this manual. Individual chapters were contributed by well-qualified experts.

It is well written, lucidly presented, and should be especially useful to those who have had some experience with radioisotopes.
