    Summary: This atlas, compiled by experienced specialists in the field, is designed as a ready reference on the use of parathyroid scintigraphy in patients with hyperparathyroidism, both for the localisation of parathyroid pathology and as an aid to surgery. The introductory chapters review the basic core knowledge on the subject. Eighty case reviews are then presented, covering gamma camera planar imaging, SPECT, hybrid SPECT-CT, and also PET-CT. In total, 240 illustrations are included, comprising 160 grey-scale photos depicting nuclear medicine and CT images and 80 dual-modality fusion colour photos. This compilation of illustrative clinical cases will greatly assist clinicians and imaging specialists in image interpretation in different settings. The images replicate normal conventional formats used for routine reporting and hence facilitate fast and reliable diagnosis. Each of the case reviews includes documentation of the procedure, findings, and conclusions with relevant commentary. Surgeons, nuclear medicine physicians, and radiologists will find the Radionuclide Parathyroid Imaging: Book and Atlas to be a valuable practical tool and learning aid.
