The publication explains the applied mathematical and physical principles of medical imaging and image processing and is organized into 8 chapters in pages with illustrations in colour.
The first chapter provides an introduction to digital imaging, explaining the physical and mathematical process. Over the next four chapters the most important diagnostic imaging modalities currently used are treated, including radiography, CT, MRI, nuclear medicine and ultrasounds.
Each chapter is organized as follows:. The last two chapters deal with image analysis and visualization for diagnosis, including also tridimensional images, useful to better direct surgery and therapy. The book is further enriched by a description of future perspectives. An updated bibliography also includes, in a subdomain, suggestions for more specialized papers or for issues not treated in the book, but helpful for a deeper knowledge; finally, an appendix with exercises for better text comprehension is included.
Answers, such as 3-D animations and other didactic material, can be obtained from an ancillary website www. This is one of the many implementations that have been added with respect to the first edition. Coming back to the premise, i. This publication is particularly suggested for all diagnostic imaging laboratories, as a book to consult for finding valuable assistance in understanding the physical and mathematical principles of images as the basic premise to their clinical applications.
