We will use the Textbook of Veterinary Nuclear Medicine as a reference; this can be ordered directly from the ACVR (cost: $100):

In the United States today, there are many opportunities for Continuing Education for Veterinarians and Veterinary Technicians. The faculty at the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine are dedicated to delivering the most in-depth and personal educational experience possible. While there are other less expensive programs that can meet one's Continuing Education requirements, we make a point of limiting our courses to small groups so that each participant receives personal instruction from our faculty instructors.
