Authored by a prominent educator; Fundamental Mathematics and Physics of Medical Imaging; (PDF) teaches the basic mathematics and physics concepts related to medical imaging systems. Going beyond a mere description of imaging modalities; this ebook digs into the mechanisms of image quality and image formation common to all imaging systems: noise; contrast mechanisms; and spatial and temporal resolution; making it an important reference for biomedical engineering students and medical physicists. This is an extensively reviewed new edition of The Physics of Medical X-Ray Imaging by Bruce Hasegawa (Medical Physics Publishing; 1991); and includes a broad range of modalities such as X-ray CT; MRI; and SPECT.

NOTE: The product only includes the ebook Fundamental Mathematics; and Physics of Medical Imaging in PDF. No access codes are included.
