The challenge of CONTEMPO. Nuclear medicine. The radiologist's view

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The continuing strength of nuclear medical diagnosis lies in its ability to depict function and therefore detect physiological alterations in a manner not made available by the more morphologically oriented techniques, such as conventional radiography, computed tomography, and ultrasonography. Developments in the basic science areas of radiotracer technology and instrumentation have moved rapidly from the research laboratory to clinical facilities where they have significantly contributed to the diagnostic armamentarium in medicine and surgery. Three of the more notable areas of particularly intensive investigative efforts during the past two or three years: cardiac and gastrointestinal disease and emission tomography are described.
