This book is a non mathematical introduction to the principles underlying modern medical imaging, taking tomography as its central theme.

The first three chapters cover the general principles of tomography, a survey of the atomic and nuclear physics which underpins modern imaging and a review of the key issues involved in radiation protection.

As such, this book consists of three major parts: medical physics which includes 3D reconstructions, image processing and segmentation in medical imaging, and medical imaging instruments and systems. As the field is very broad and growing exponentially, this book will cover major activities with chapters prepared by leaders in the field.

Medical Imaging Technology reveals the physical and materials principles of medical imaging and image processing, from how images are obtained to how they are used. It covers all aspects of image formation in modern imaging modalities and addresses the techniques, instrumentation, and advanced materials used in this rapidly changing field.

Scientific basis of medical imaging book The Handbook of Medical Imaging is the first comprehensive compilation of the concepts and techniques used to analyze and manipulate medical images after they have been generated or digitized.

The Handbook is organized in six sections that relate to the main functions needed for processing: enhancement, segmentation, quantification. Now in its updated Third Edition, MRI: The Basics is an easy-to-read introduction to the physics behind MR imaging. The subject is presented in a clear, user-friendly, clinically relevant fashion, with large-size, legible equations, state-of-the-art images and instructive diagrams, and questions and answers that are ideal for board review/5(7).

Introduction. A discussion about the scientific basis for a medical procedure implies that one must first define precisely what the necessary scientific objectives are. Any phenomenon could be considered a scientific fact, if that phenomenon is observed and measured in the best possible technical manner by an observer and if the results are reproducible by other by: Medicine is the science and practice of establishing the diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, and prevention of ne encompasses a variety of health care practices evolved to maintain and restore health by the prevention and treatment of porary medicine applies biomedical sciences, biomedical research, genetics, and medical technology to diagnose, treat, and prevent Glossary: Glossary of medicine.
