Imaging Systems for Medical Diagnostics

The book provides a comprehensive compilation of basics, technical solutions and applications for medical imaging systems. It is intended as a handbook for students in biomedical engineering for medical physicists, and for engineers working on medical technologies, as well as for lecturers at universities and engineering schools. For qualified personnel at hospitals, and physicians working with these instruments it serves as a basic source of information. This also applies for service engineers and marketing specialists.

The book starts with the representation of the physical basics of image processing, implying some knowledge of Fourier transforms. After that, experts working in industry describe technical solutions and applications for imaging systems in medical diagnostics. The applications comprise the fields of X-ray diagnostics, computed tomography, nuclear medical diagnostics, magnetic resonance imaging, sonography, and molecular imaging. Considering the increasing importance of software based solutions, emphasis is also laid on the imaging software platform and hospital information systems.
