The importance of medical imaging for diagnostics is strongly increasing. It is now necessary to have a good knowledge of the different physical principles possible.
This book describes the physical principles and technologies used in medical imaging in detail, and advanced devices are introduced (semiconducting detectors, optical tomography systems, etc.). Reconstruction methods and detection technologies are also described.
Chapters are also dedicated to the most important photon-based techniques used in medical imaging systems: X-ray radiology and tomography, gamma ray tomography, positron tomography, optical tomography.
Of interest to all scientists and engineers working in hospitals or in the medical imaging industry, this book offers a rare global approach to the subject of medical imaging.
