Positron Emission Tomography Study Guide: A Technologist's Review for Passing Board Exams presents a comprehensive review of nuclear medicine principles and concepts necessary for technologists and allied health professionals to pass the Positron Emission Tomography Specialty Examination. The practice questions are similar in format and content to those found on the exams administered by the Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board (NMTCB) and American Registry of Radiological Technologists (ARRT), allowing test takers to maximize their success in pass the exams. The book is organized by sections of increasing difficulty, with over 600 multiple-choice questions covering diagnostic procedures, instrumentation/quality control, radiation protection, and radiopharmaceuticals used in PET and PET/CT imaging. Detailed answers and explanations to the practice questions follow. Supplementary chapters include a guide to common numbers, formulas, normal range of values, and key terms used in nuclear cardiology.
"This is a comprehensive Question Answer Guide to radiation physics PET and CT Imaging Over 50 questions an index and abbrevisation appendix are well covered. This book will be a good review source for independent study and a review for the rad onc, medical physics, PET CT Examination. I recommend this as a review guide with helpful comments for nuclear doctors and fellows." (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, July, 2015)
