Advancing Nuclear Medicine Through Innovation


Nearly 20 million nuclear medicine procedures are carried out each year in the United States alone to diagnose and treat cancers, cardiovascular disease, and certain neurological disorders.

Many of the advancements in nuclear medicine have been the result of research investments made during the past 50 years where these procedures are now a routine part of clinical care.

Although nuclear medicine plays an important role in biomedical research and disease management, its promise is only beginning to be realized.

Advancing Nuclear Medicine Through Innovation highlights the exciting emerging opportunities in nuclear medicine, which include assessing the efficacy of new drugs in development, individualizing treatment to the patient, and understanding the biology of human diseases.

Health care and pharmaceutical professionals will be most interested in this book’s examination of the challenges the field faces and its recommendations for ways to reduce these impediments.
