>>Functional imaging atlas in nuclear medicine

Functional imaging atlas in nuclear medicine Nuclear medicine offers a specific functional approach of the organs and also investigates the repercussion of disease on the normal function of these organs.

Contrarily to radiology, mainly anatomical, nuclear medicine studies indicate the pathophysiological conditions induced by the disease.

Recently, the introduction of nuclear medicine and radiological fusion imaging allowed a combination of anatomical and functional information simultaneously.

In this work, we briefly present the contribution of the technique in most important pathological conditions.

Also, the eventual necessary precautions to optimize the test will be presented.
