This book serves as a good reference source for rapidly reviewing applications of radioactive isotopes to the diagnosis of problems in hematology and gastroenterology. Much of the medical information compiled in hematology has been acquired through application of radioactive tagging. Interrelationships with the gastrointestinal tract frequently are a necessary aspect of these studies. In addition, radionuclides have been used to delineate gastrointestinal aspects that are not interrelated with hematology. These are also considered.
Albert J. Gibson and his associates from the Division of Nuclear Medicine at the University of Miami have compiled much of the data presented at a symposium on nuclear medical applications in the fields of hematology and gastroenterology that was held at Miami Beach in March 1971. A broad cross-section of medical investigators and practitioners with interest in hematology and gastroenterology contributed to the book. While each presentation is a distinct entity, the editors have succeeded in
