In no small part, this is the result of dramatic improvements in technology and the application of these improve of diagnostic techniques. ments to the development and refinement In this book, authorities on cardiac imaging techniques provide an up-to-date description of the field, covering the clinical appli cability, efficacy, and future potential of myocardial perfusion scinti graphy, quantitation of regional blood flow, assessment of ventricu lar performance, and detection of acute infarction using radio tracers. This book provides the physician involved in cardiac diag nosis with the background necessary to integrate the radiotracer method into his diagnostic armamentarium. Boston, August 1979 B.L.
