This book introduces the fundamental aspects of digital imaging and covers four main themes: ultrasound techniques and imaging applications, magnetic resonance and MPJ in hospital, digital imaging with X-rays, and emission tomography (PET and SPECT).
Each topic is developed by analyzing the underlying physics principles and their implementation, quality and safety aspects, clinical performance, and recent advancements in the field.
Collects papers from users of Ultrasound, Magnetic Resonance, radiology, PET and SPECT devices
Security and Quality assurance are also presented
Each device is explained by Medical Physicists using them in hospital and clinical applications are reviewed by practicians
