Designed to provide those engaged in modern medical imaging with a coherent perspective of the entire discipline so that one protocol is no longer an isolated or independent mode of imaging from others, to wit: single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), positron emission tomography (PET) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Introduces biomagnetic imaging as a third new modality.


A text-reference providing students as well as independent researchers with a coherent and unified view of medical imaging as a whole. It emphasizes the foundations upon which medical imaging is based, including the basic physics and mathematics associated with each modality and interaction parameter as well as the mathematics and computational tools associated with image reconstruction. The volume is divided into five sections: basics for medical imaging, imaging with ionizing radiation, magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound and ultrasonic imaging, and biomagnetic imaging.
