“This is the most comprehensive text & atlas of pediatric nuclear imaging available. … I recommend this book to residents, fellows, radiologists, nuclear physicians and graduate doctors alike.” (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, September, 2015)
“The main structure of the book has remained constant during the years, with the aim of covering all aspects concerning nuclear medicine in paediatrics … . Treves’ Pediatric Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging may be a valuable educational and informative resource for nuclear physicians, for students and for all the professionals involved in diagnostic imaging or in the care of paediatric patients.” (Barbara Russo and Luigi Mansi, European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, Vol. 42, 2015)
