Summary The modern practice of nuclear medicine is now well into its seventh decade. Its strength in depicting physiology and function has always complemented our sister anatomic modalities such as CT, MRI and ultrasound. With the incredible development of PET/CT, this is evident now more than ever. Clinical Nuclear Medicine is a unique European/American joint venture that focuses on the universal state of the art in both diagnostic and therapeutic radionuclide methodology. Pertinent clinical applications are emphasized rather than attempting to cover everything included in the several large comprehen
