This groundbreaking product, Handbook of X-ray Imaging: Physics and Technology (PDF), is the first ebook to be dedicated to the physics and technology of X-ray imaging. It provides comprehensive treatment of the discipline and features chapter contributions from more than 130 industry leaders. This extremely comprehensive work has been edited by one of the world’s foremost authorities in X-ray imaging physics and technology, and it has been created with the guidance of a Scientific Board that consists of respected and renowned scientists from all over the world. Moreover, this work has been created with the assistance of a Scientific Advisory Board.
The scope of this ebook encompasses 3D and 2D X-ray imaging techniques, ranging from soft-X-ray to megavoltage energies. These techniques include fluoroscopy, dental imaging, computed tomography, and imaging of small animals. Additionally, several chapters in this ebook are dedicated to breast imaging techniques. Imaging in both three dimensions and two dimensions is used in industry, and this includes imaging of artworks. Techniques of phase-contrast X-ray imaging are the focus of a particular amount of study here.
The strategy that was implemented is one that exemplifies the theory in addition to the techniques, tools, and technologies that are commonly utilized in the many sectors. All computational components are addressed, including hard and software phantoms, techniques for 3D reconstruction, and computer-aided diagnosis. Theories regarding image quality are shown in every detail. The instructional, historical, radiation dosimetry, and radioprotection facets, along with quality assurance, are all covered in this book.
This handbook will be suitable for a very wide audience, including graduate students in medical physics and biomedical engineering; radiographers; medical physics residents; physicists; and engineers in the field of imaging and non-destructive industrial testing using X-rays; and scientists interested in understanding and using X-ray imaging techniques. Other potential readers include medical physics residents and physicists; radiographers; and medical physics residents.
Dr. Paolo Russo, who is in charge of editing this handbook, has worked in higher education for over 30 years, mostly in the fields of medical physics and X-ray imaging research. He is the Editor-in-Chief of an international scientific journal in medical physics, as well as having responsibilities in the publication committees of several international scientific organizations in the field of medical physics.
