Sampson's Textbook of Radiopharmacy
Edited by Tony Theobald, School of Medicine, Kings College, London, UK
As the demand for radiopharmacists continues to increase, Sampson's Textbook of Radiopharmacy meets the need for specialised information on the use of radiopharmaceuticals in the detection and treatment of diseases and conditions.
The fourth edition of this well-established book has been completely revised and updated to reflect developments in the science and practice of radiopharmacy.
The book is divided into the following six sections:
- physics applied to radiopharmacy
- medicinal radio-elements
- radiopharmacology and radiopharmacokinetics
- radiopharmaceutics: formulation, preparation and quality assurance
- radiopharmacy practice
- new techniques for design and testing of radiopharmaceuticals.
This book is essential reading for advanced students specialising in radiopharmacy and will serve as a lifelong reference for radiopharmacists practising in PET (Positron Emission Tomography) centres, nuclear medicine centres and radiopharmacies, as well as those working in research or the pharmaceutical industry.
Sampson's Textbook of Radiopharmacy is also available as an eBook.
