Since radioisotope scanning is developing quite rapidly, it is difficult to produce a book on scanning methodolgy that is of more than transient interest. This volume is a collection of papers presented at a scanning symposium in January, 1964, and is directed at providing a compact and ready reference to currently available methods. Because of time, these "currently available methods" are those which were in use in 1963 and which, in most cases, were concerned with one model of a commercially available scanner. Since most radioisotope scanning groups quickly obtain their own methods and evaluate scans of specific procedures, this book will be primarily of interest as a reference, telling one how to start on a method previously not performed by one's own group.
For that purpose, this volume will be extremely useful. Most of the new types of scanning procedures are presented, such as parathyroid scans, lung scans, pancreas
