Introduction to Biomedical Imaging
by Andrew Webb

Introduction to Biomedical Imaging provides in-depth coverage of the field of biomedical imaging, with particular attention to an engineering viewpoint.

Introduction to Biomedical Imaging discusses:

  • The physical principles, instrumental design, data acquisition strategies, image reconstruction techniques, and clinical applications of each modality
  • Recent developments such as multi-slice spiral computed tomography, harmonic and sub-harmonic ultrasonic imaging, multi-slice PET scanning, and functional magnetic resonance imaging
  • General image characteristics such as spatial resolution and signal-to-noise, common to all of the imaging modalities
