Since the publication of the best-selling, highly acclaimed first edition, the technology and clinical applications of medical imaging have changed significantly. Gathering these developments into one volume, Webb’s Physics of Medical Imaging, Second Edition presents the basic physics, modern technology and up-to-date examples of clinical application across all the modalities of medical imaging.
New to the Second Edition
- Coverage of state-of-the-art detector technology and computer processing used in medical imaging
- Chapters on medical image processing and multimodality imaging
- More than 50 percent new examples and over 80 percent new figures
Keeping the material accessible to graduate students, this well-illustrated book reviews the basic physics underpinning imaging in medicine. It covers the major techniques of x-radiology, computerised tomography, nuclear medicine, ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging, in addition to infrared, electrical impedance and optical imaging. The text also describes the mathematics of medical imaging, image processing, image perception, computational requirements and multimodality imaging.
- Presents the essential physics of medical imaging
- Covers each imaging modality in detail, eliminating the need to consult specialised texts
- Provides many examples of clinical applications of medical imaging
- Includes contributions from leading researchers and clinical scientists
- Contains more than 400 high-quality figures, with some in colour
