Medical Radioisotope Scintigraphy 1972. Proceedings of a Simposium, Monte Carlo, 23-28 October, 1973

Scintigraphic procedures for the delineation of organs or tissues of the body, or the detection of tumours, cysts or other lesions within them constitute probably the most important group of applications of radioactive tracers in clinical diagnosis and investigation. The two volumes to which this foreword relates contain the proceedings of the Symposium on Medical Radioisotope Scintigraphy held by the International Atomic Energy Agency in Monte Carlo, Principality of Monaco, from 23 to 28 October 1972. The Symposium was attended by 488 participants from 40 countries and five international organizations. A total of 97 papers were presented in ten scientific sessions.

The Symposium was in fact the fourth on the subject to have been organized by the IAEA, previous meetings having been held in Vienna in 1959, in Athens in 1964 and in Salzburg in 1968. The four years that have elapsed since the last of these meetings have seen a number of important advances. New scintigraphic instruments have been produced and existing ones have been refined. New radiopharmaceuticals for scintigraphy have been developed — notably ones labelled with generator-produced or cyclotron-produced radionuclides. Computers have been increasingly used for the processing and evaluation of scintigraphic data. The Symposium provided medical scientists of various disciplines with an opportunity to exchange information on these advances.

The proceedings contain the texts of all the papers presented at the Symposium, together with an edited record of the discussions. Volume I covers those parts of the meeting dealing with scintigraphic instruments and techniques, including techniques for processing scintigraphic data, and contains a progress report on the IAEA Co-ordinated Research Programme on the Intercomparison of Computer-assisted Scintigraphic Techniques, based on results presented at an open session of a research co-ordination meeting of the Programme held in conjunction with the Symposium. Volume II covers those parts dealing with radiopharmaceuticals for scintigraphy and with clinical aspects.

It is hoped that the proceedings will constitute a useful guide to the present status of the subject.

The papers and discussions incorporated in the proceedings published by the International Atomic Energy Agency are edited by the Agency's editorial staff to the extent considered necessary for the reader's assistance. The views expressed and the general style adopted remain, however, the responsibility of the named authors or participants.

For the sake of speed of publication the present Proceedings have been printed by composition typing and photo-offset lithography. Within thelimi-tations imposed by this method, every effort has been made to maintain a high editorial standard; in particular, the units and symbols employed are to the fullest practicable extent those standardized or recommended by the competent international scientific bodies.

The affiliations of authors are those given at the time of nomination.

The use in these Proceedings of particular designations of countries or territories does not imply any judgement by the Agency as to the legal status of such countries or territories, of their authorities and institutions or of the delimitation of their boundaries.

The mention of specific companies or of their products or brand-names does not imply any endorsement or recommendation on the part of the International Atomic Energy Agency.
