Om boka

This book introduces the imaging techniques used in medicine and science, presenting the underlying physics concepts to explore optical microscopy, endoscopy, ultrasound, radiography, computed tomography, radionuclide imaging, and magnetic resonance imaging. The authors reinforce concepts with illustrative examples, problems, applications, and experiments. Readers will learn imaging fundamentals, practical uses, strengths and weaknesses of each major technique. The contents are bolstered by many vivid images and boxed text featuring in-depth explanation of key ideas.
