In the preface to this book Dr. Silver voices some reservations as to the wisdom of an attempt at a single-authored text in this rapidly expanding field. Regrettably, one is forced to share these reservations. Full text Full text is available as a scanned copy of the original print version.

Nuclear medicine is a medical specialty that uses radioactive tracers (radiopharmaceuticals) to assess bodily functions and to diagnose and treat disease. Specially designed cameras allow doctors to track the path of these radioactive tracers. Note: Citations are based on reference standards.

Unstable nuclides are radioactive and are called radionuclides. Their decay products ('daughter' products) are called radiogenic nuclides. stable and about 87 unstable (radioactive) nuclides exist naturally on Earth, for a total of about naturally occurring nuclides on Earth. A radionuclide (radioactive nuclide, radioisotope or radioactive isotope) is an atom that has excess nuclear energy, making it unstable. This excess energy can be used in one of three ways: emitted from the nucleus as gamma radiation; transferred to one of its electrons to release it as a conversion electron; or used to create and emit a new particle (alpha particle or beta particle) from the.
