Book reviews

        The first edition of Nuclear Medicine: The Requisites appeared in 1995. In my department it became the first text recommended to nuclear medicine residents upon acceptance into our training program and to radiology residents rotating through our service. To be sure, we have emphasized that nuclear medicine is not defined or described in a relatively brief text. Nevertheless, the first edition was eminently readable, lucid, and succinct yet remarkably complete and I have repeatedly recommended it to each annual cluster of residents with good reception on their part and good results in then subsequent clinical–didactic interaction and performance on board examinations. Of course, over even as brief a time as 6 years, many changes have occurred, particularly in as dynamic a specialty as nuclear medicine. Happily, the authors have produced a second edition that is a worthy successor to the first.
