Containing chapter contributions from over 130 experts; this unique publication; Handbook of X-ray Imaging: Physics and Technology (PDF) is the first ebook dedicated to the physics and technology of X-ray imaging; offering extensive coverage of the field. This highly comprehensive work is edited by one of the world’s leading experts in X-ray imaging physics and technology and has been created with guidance from a Scientific Board containing respected and renowned scientists from all around the world.
The ebook’s scope includes 3D and 2D X-ray imaging techniques from soft-X-ray to megavoltage energies; including fluoroscopy; dental imaging; computed tomography; and small animal imaging; with several chapters dedicated to breast imaging techniques. 3D and 2D industrial imaging are incorporated; including imaging of artworks. Specific attention is dedicated to techniques of phase-contrast X-ray imaging.
The approach undertaken is one that illustrates the theory as well as the techniques and the devices routinely used in the various fields. Computational aspects are fully covered; including hard/software phantoms; 3D reconstruction algorithms; and computer-aided diagnosis. Theories of image quality are fully illustrated. Historical; radiation dosimetry; radioprotection; quality assurance; and educational aspects are also covered.
This handbook will be suitable for a very broad 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.
The handbook’s editor; Dr. Paolo Russo; has over 30 years’ experience in the academic teaching of medical physics and X-ray imaging research. He has authored several book chapters in the field of X-ray imaging; is Editor-in-Chief of an international scientific journal in medical physics and has responsibilities in the publication committees of international scientific organizations in medical physics.
