A Patients Guide to Nuclear Medicine Procedures

Juan C. Mas, RT(R,N,CT), CNMT



This book is designed to describe nuclear medicine procedures in very simple terms in both English and Spanish. It is a valuable tool that medical personnel can use to help educate patients—especially Spanish-speaking patients—about the steps involved with over thirty specific nuclear medicine procedures.

In its flip-chart format, the book can sit on a reception desk, in the patient waiting area or in the hot lab and provide the patient, family members or friends an opportunity to learn about a scheduled procedure. The easel-type stand-up binding and setup of the book allow a staff member to read through and explain a procedure in English to a Spanish-speaking patient while the patient, sitting on the opposite side of the table, follows along in Spanish. The book is concise, easy to read and understand, and can be customized and reused.

In its pocket-size version, the book can be carried in a lab-coat pocket and used anywhere in the facility.

This helpful flip-chart guide is all you need to prepare your patients for nuclear medicine procedures.
