Written at the technologist level, Nuclear Medicine Instrumentation focuses on instruments essential to the practice of nuclear medicine. Covering everything from Geiger counters to positron emission tomography systems, this text provides students with an understanding of the practical aspects of these instruments and their uses in nuclear medicine. By concentrating on the operation of these instruments and the potential pitfalls that they are subject to, students will be better prepared for what they may encounter during their career. Chapters include: Detectors Gas-Filled, Scintillation and Semiconductor; Image Characteristics SPECT, PET; Collimators; Radiation Measurements; and more.activity and dividing by the square of the distance between the source and the detector. ...
