This book outlines the history of the development of nuclear medicine and describes the hurdles that nuclear medicine has had to face, in view of the perception of risk of radiation. Up to the present day, the diagnosis and treatment of cancer has been primarily surgical. When a mass or an enlarged lymph node is detected, immediate attempts are made to remove it or obtain a histological diagnosis by biopsy. Today, characterization of molecular processes in cancerous lesions by PET can help to determine whether therapy should be aggressive or postponed. The most important reason for the rapid acceptance of PET imaging is its value in the care of patients with suspected or known cancer, for establishing the diagnosis, planning and monitoring therapy, and in detecting early recurrence.Written for nuclear medicine professionals, non-nuclear medicine physicians and the public, this book chronicles the development of nuclear medicine together with its basic philosophy in the past, present and future.Table of contents Introduction.- Survival of the Luckiest.- So You Want To Be a Doctor.- First Taste of Research.- Medical School and House Staff.- The National Institutes of Health.- A New Medical Specialty.- The Early Days.- The Thyroid Paves The Way.- The Breakthrough to Lung Scanning.- Computers in Nuclear Medicine.- From the Lungs to the Heart.- Growth Out of Control.- Molecular Communication.- The Fight Against Infectious Disease.- A New Approach to Disease.- The Genetic Revolution.- Epilogue.
