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.
