Essential Nuclear Medicine Physics provides an excellent introduction to the basic concepts of the daunting area of nuclear physics. Logically structured and clearly written, this is the book of choice for anyone entering the field of nuclear medicine, including nuclear medicine residents and fellows, cardiac nuclear medicine fellows and nuclear medicine technology students. The text is also a handy quick-reference guide for those already working in the field of nuclear physics.
This new edition provides a basic introduction to nuclear physics and the interactions of radiation and matter. The authors also provide comprehensive coverage of instrumentation and imaging, with separate chapters devoted to SPECT, PET, and PET/CT. Discussion of radiation biology, radiation safety and care of victims of radiation accidents completes the text, with an appendix containing the latest NRC rules and regulations.
Essential Nuclear Medicine Physics presents difficult concepts clearly and concisely, defines all terminology for the reader, and facilitates learning through extensive illustrations and self-assessment questions.

Completely revised and updated, Protein Crystallization, 2nd Edition is a greatly expanded follow-up to the best-selling 1st edition. Completely new chapters on high-throughput methods, mass spectrometry, microcalorimetry, counterdiffusion, heavy-atom derivatization, selenomethionine-labeling, rational strategies for crystallization, and protein modification to improve crystallization. Updated chapters on formulation of the protein before crystallization, characterization of the protein by dynamic light scattering, classic methods and the phase diagram, seeding, and cryoprotection of the crystals. Laboratory exercises are included which can be used for teaching purposes in protein crystallization or crystallography courses. The exercises have been tested in the Practical Protein Crystallization courses that have been running since 1994 at Uppsala University (Sweden), as well as courses elsewhere. The book is divided into four separate sections: Methods, Tools and Strategies, Laboratory Exercises, and an A-Z Glossary. There are 30 color plates for identifying phenomena found in crystallization drops. As in the first edition, the emphasis of the book is on practical problems and questions encountered at the lab bench.
